We support teachers every year by assisting them in attending the American Wilderness Leadership School.  Teachers learn how to teach stewardship of the land, integrate stewardship with class discussions and develop outdoor recreational skill.

Tailfeather Camp offers a unique one week camping experience to children ages 11-15. Our mission is to highlight South Dakota’s vast outdoor opportunities to our youth and build strong families through hunting and fishing traditions.
