Fall "Intro to Forestry" Camp

Our third annual camp took place this October at Silver Lake Forestry Camp near Peachland, BC. Once again, twenty-four grade 10-12 students received instruction from BCIT instructor Kelly Hatfull, local forestry experts Jerome Jang (MOFR), Bryan Darroch (Gorman Bros.), Robert Bazett (Tolko Industries) and Initial Attack members Dale Bojarha, Greg Gaudry and Joel Rudyk. The students enjoyed everything but some favourite events were the “Search and Rescue” exercise, learning about firefighting and the wonderful food served by Detleif; the Silver Lake cook.
