EAGLE NEST -- Youths will have a chance to learn outdoor skills in some of northern New Mexico’s most magnificent scenery at the inaugural Great Outdoors Camp July 10-15 at Eagle Nest Lake State Park. The free camp will be from 9 a.m. to noon each day.

Youths between the ages of 10 and 14 are invited to participate and learn about archery, pellet-gun shooting, boating safety, outdoor cooking, fishing, being safe in bear and cougar country and wise habitat management.
