The Wisconsin Wildlife Federation continues its commitment to conservation education through financial support of the Kids And Mentors Outdoors Program.

K.A.M.O. was thought of and created by outdoor columnist Mark Walters and exists to give children access to a variety of experiences that should help them develop an appreciation for nature, a stewardship ethic and a knowledge of outdoor traditions to carry forward. These children will soon be adults who have the potential to impact the outdoor industry economically and pass the traditions and outdoor skills they’ve learned on to yet another generation.

K.A.M.O. is a unique mentoring organization that provides FREE to children year round activities. Kids get the opportunity to team with mentors over a period of several years so that their appreciation for nature can be more fully developed. KAMOKIDS can learn life-long outdoor skills and become future stewards of our resources. Parents are always welcome to participate in KAMO activities.

Members of K.A.M.O.’s eight Wisconsin chapters plan, organize and finance outdoor adventures including hiking, wildlife viewing, canoeing, fishing, camping, hunting, orienteering, trapping, skiing, biking and snowshoeing. The group’s mentors share a passion for nature and a keen desire to provide children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to get outdoors that chance. Each mentor is background checked.
