Coulee KAMO Looking
There is an organization in your area called Kids and Mentors Outdoors (KAMO).
KAMO has year around outdoors outings intended to get kids and their families interested in being outdoors more.
There is no cost to join KAMO.
Most of the families we work with live in La Crosse, Holmen, Onalaska and have kids between 8-14.
KAMO is currently interested in working with more families.
Do you have children who want to get involved with fishing, canoeing, snowshoeing, sledding, hunting, archery, and more?

Our group meets to plan our activities out to April at our next open to the public meeting which is Thursday, November 8th at the Onalaska Goodwill at 6:00 P.M.
We are arranging to have our trailer wrapped in photos and logos and park it it in a variety of spots in hopes of attracting more participants to our group.
Here’s the present activity schedule: All free to you. Dates will be firmed up in a couple weeks.
November 10th - Tundra Swan Viewing - Brownsville Overlook - The KAMO group flocks to the overlook platform to view the thousands of birds migrating through the area on their way south. Mike - email@example.com/ 608-799-5037. More details later. Last year, we met at the south La crescent Kwik Trip parking lot at 10:30 and caravanned down. Another group we partner with will have hot chocolate and snacks for all of us.
