Students Come To Studio With Bug Out Bag List for Survivalist Training
As you know, we here are Bolm Studios appreciate our local schools and do our best to incorporate them into a part of the artistic community that we have created in our town.
Well, as the school year comes to a close for 2015, we are doing our best to send off the school kids with a great backpack filled with all of the necessary goodies for their outdoor adventures this summer. We have partnered with the local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts and Fine Arts Camps to provide students with what they need for the summer ahead.
What’s in a Bug Out Bag List?
That’s why this week we are going to be hosting an event in our studio designed to help kids know what to pack in their bail out backpacks when going camping.
The Boy Scout Troop 196 Leader Joey Jenkins will be leading a demonstration on what exactly every scout needs to bring in his bag to keep safe in the wild. He will be earning both his public speaking and survivalism patch for this project.
This is just a portion of the pre summer camp activities we have planned. Many of them have to do with outdoor activities as part of an effort to keep kids active and healthy in the summer months. After all, it’s the best time of the year to play outside and stay active. Seeing kids cooped up in the house playing video games all day long during the summer is very sad.
Whether you are outside painting a landscape or learning how to survive in the wilderness by creating a fire or building a shelter, the important thing it to be outside and be active. The Boy Scouts have taken a great lead and special credit goes to kids like Joey Jenkins who simply want to make sure other scouts have everything they need in their own bug out bag lists for suvivalism.
What Should You Bring?
The only thing you will need to bring to the outdoors survivalist demonstration and the other events throughout this week’s pre-summer kickoff party is a bail out backpack and a pen and paper. Donations are $5 are suggested but not required.
We hope to bring this event to as many people as possible, and the donation helps us cover the costs that we as a storefront incur from hosting these events. It doesn’t give us enough to make money, but it does help us to keep from losing it.
One last thing to be sure to bring. A Friend! Bring a friend with and let’s get them interested in the great outdoors. The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are hoping to get 10-15 new members each as a result of their respective events, but it sure would be great if we could go above and beyond that with 20 new members each.
The main event will be this Saturday from 10:30 AM and goes all the way until 7 PM with a BBQ lunch that everyone is welcome to attend. Stay tuned for more updates.
See you there!
