Chris had a passion for the outdoors, and one of the Foundation’s core purposes is to help kids experience nature. With a $1,000 grant awarded to the Kansas Wildlife Foundation, three kids will attend their Outdoor Adventure Camp.
At this six-day summer camp, kids will enjoy the outdoors and learn about nature. Kids explore the grounds with instructors at Camp WaShunGa, just south of Junction City, getting a hands-on feel for how various critters and plants live together in the ecosystem. Other activities include scavenger hunts, water sports including swimming and canoeing, fishing, shooting sports including rifle, shotgun, muzzleloader, archery, and pellet gun.
Over the years, the Foundation has supported the Kansas Wildlife Federation with nearly $4,000 in grants to give kids the opportunity to connect with nature and learn more about their environment.
