Seeking instructors who enjoy painting, making art, or have a craft to share that can be done and enjoyed in the great outdoors! Outdoor Family Weekend will be held on September 10-12, 2021 at Stillwater State Park in Groton. We invite volunteer instructors to offer workshops to help families learn and grow their love of the outdoors in exchange for free camping and participation in the weekend for you and your family (up to 8 people)! In the past we have had workshops on making a barn quilt, guided acrylic painting, and making pan pipes from dried, invasive knotweed. Get creative and let us know what fun topics you might bring to the event!
As an instructor, you and your family can participate in other workshops like wildlife, forestry, orienteering and GPS, hiking, fitness, camping skills, kayaking, firearm safety, fishing, and much, much more. Expert instructors lead each workshop with the basics, providing hands-on experience and encouraging participants to ask questions.
UVM Extension 4-H and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources Departments of Fish and Wildlife and Forests, Parks and Recreation collaborate on this annual event, designed to cultivate families’ connections with the outdoors, through camping and the acquisition of new skills.
