First Time Campers Program Recognized in Great Falls Connection

The First Time Campers (FTC) program is recognized and written-up in the October Great Fall Connection:

“The ninth edition of the First Time Campers Program at Wolf Trap Park is officially in the books. Held between Sunday, Oct. 7 and Monday, Oct. 8 at Wolf Trap Park — with a special permit in the otherwise no-camping, no-fires park — some 40 campers from schools around the region and a small army of adult and youth volunteer leaders, enjoyed pitching tents, setting up camp, cooking their own meals using dutch ovens, and activities like fishing, archery, hiking, bird watching, rock wall climbing and more.

Sponsored by the Friends of Wolf Trap and Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts and organized and supervised by Scout Leader Gary Pan and his experienced Troop 55 Scouts, the program was piloted in 2014 as a way to help local youngsters, some from Title I schools and lower income families, enjoy a fun-filled over-nighter right in their own backyard.”
