There will be two camps, Camp Rushford and Camp Mandaville, trying to open a third camp in the future.

We cannot wait to see your campers!  

This website is dedicated to Pat Arnold's vision to bring trapping to our youth.  The program Pat started has been very successful. Each year we are getting more and more kids to enroll.  So many kids in fact that we added a new camp in 2014. None of this could have been possible without the steadfast committment of Pat Arnold.  Please visit the Pat Arnold Tribute Page to learn more about Pat Arnold.
