Help send me to Coyote Camp!

My name is Maya and I'm 13 ! This summer I would LOVE to go to Coyote Camp, which is a phenomenal 2-week overnight adventure experience.

Coyote Camp is a great place for kids to just be with nature to learn about themselves and how they function with other people. Coyote Camp is one of those places where you can push past your normal comfort edges!!!

My favorite primitive skills are gathering FOOD, making FIRE-by-friction, flint-knapping, stalking, tracking, and building shelters.I"m sooo EXCITED for all the fun games! Last year, we got to track black bears and river otters and birds through the wet meadows. I got my first bow-drill after a long time, And  I want to learn hand-drill. I want to keep practicing my camouflage skills because it's fun! Being hidden is really exciting--it tries your patience, but it's amazing what you can see happen around you. It also gives you new eyes to see the world! 

(mosquitos are eeevil) :)

Last year, coming back to my community it felt like I'm a hermit crab. I've been in one old shell, but now I need to keep growing and expanding and trying something new! (a new shell).

My family wants to be the most supportive people in the world, but it's not been easy financially. Your contribution would mean a great deal to me.

Thanks to everyone's donations, we've been able to lower our goal and get Maya closer to camp! Maya wanted to let people know she is willing to do yard/garden work or babysitting to help raise the remaining funds for her camp this summer. She also welcomes further donations to her campaign.
