Camping 101 offered for Jackson middle schoolers

Participants will learn how to set up a tent, manage campsite cooking and cleaning and use a compass. They’ll also get a lesson in Leave No Trace Principles, a set of outdoor ethics designed to help people enjoy the outdoors without harming the environment or wildlife. 

$20. Friday night dinner and Saturday morning breakfast included. Register by Sept. 19 at the Cullowhee Recreation Center or the Cashiers-Glenville Recreation Center. 828.293.3053 or 828.631.2020.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
