Kids and Mentors Outdoors (KAMO)
The Coulee Chapter of KAMO will be in need of:
1. Volunteers to go along on outings to chaperone our outings (which appear in another comment below).
2. Mentors for fall hunting excursions. We do small game, duck, and deer hunting. We have a camping/ youth deer gun hunt planned early in October, for example. Last year we had a LOT of kids who wanted to go.
