Ken Bell, associate professor for the School of Allied Health Sciences Department of Kinesiology, was featured in an article in the Boise County Connection on Sept. 25.
On Sept. 22, Bell lead a combined team of 15 Boise State students, 20 Timberline High School students and 20 North Junior High students on an overnight trip to Garden Valley. The purpose of the excursion was to put into practice outdoor adventure skills the students were learning.
The younger participants built survival shelters; learned fly fishing, archery skills, and how to purify water; and prepared their own dinner over the campfire. Supervision was provided by Boise State students from Bell’s Outdoor Recreation program.
