How it all began
In 1982, two men who had enjoyed the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest were helping two boys with disabilities fish, boat, and enjoy the wilderness. The idea struck; why not find a place to help those who are physically less fortunate learn about the outdoors and experience nature at its best?
To this day camp is held every year full of families looking for adventure while spending time with others facing the struggles and triumphs that come with disabilities. I had a chance to volunteer one weekend, staying in a cabin and cooking meals for the families and it was such a magical time.
You can make a difference and inspire through pumpkin art this year, donate or volunteer your time. Below are a few tips for novices and happy carving!
Pumpkin Carving Tips
- Find a pumpkin that is smooth with no soft spots
- Use a serrated spoon for better gutting and don't be afraid to remove layers from the inside because sometimes those babies are thick
- Trace out your design beforehand and use a toothpick to outline the design on your pumpkin
- Shave your pumpkin instead of carving. Use all kinds of techniques and think outside the box
- Light her up with candles or a battery-operated glow for hours in any weather conditions
