It's on! The Missouri Department of Conservation will offer a Discover Nature Girls Camp in southeast Missouri on June 21-23.

The event will be at Camp SEMO in Wappapello, Mo. It is aimed at introducing girls ages 11 to 15 to outdoor skills in a supportive learning environment.

Some of the planned activities include hunter education, firearms safety and target shooting as well as archery equipment safety, walking through a safety trail, canoeing, orienteering and fishing.
