Wondering how our camps will run?

Some of the best camp supervisors/trainers will be on hand — football: Greg MacLaren; volleyball: Denice Cody; soccer: Angie Matheson Straatmann.

Here are some of the safety protocols that will be used:

► Campers will be temperature checked and use hand sanitizer upon arrival to camp each day. Any campers with a temperature above 100.3 will not be able to participate that day and will be sent home.

► Campers will use hand sanitizer before leaving for the day.

► Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the camp.

► Campers will be split into co-hort groups of no more than 12 people with up to two counselors per co-hort.

► Campers will remain in these co-hort groups for the duration of the camp. Co-hort groups will not intermingle.

► Counselors will wear a mask when physical distancing is not possible.

► Campers will not be required to wear masks but will be asked to be prepared to do so if necessary.

► Drills will be structured to limit equipment-sharing. WDCPRD will sanitize all its equipment at the conclusion of camp each day.

► Campers will rotate within their co-hort groups from station to station with their own equipment.

► Campers must bring their own water bottles. Water will not be provided.

Seeking Bigfoot info

Author Tom Morris has been studying Bigfoot for years. Morris asks hikers and hunters that if any incidents involving Bigfoot come up, to notify him on his landline at 925-930-8123; send him an email at and put BIGFOOT in subject line; or send a report in to the Bigfoot Field Research Organization,

There are organizations set on collecting real information, sightings and stories about Bigfoot. One such organization is the Bigfoot Field Research Organization.

Founded in 1995, BFRO claims to be “the only scientific research organization exploring the bigfoot/sasquatch mystery.”

The organization has sightings in Trinity County dating back as far as the 1960s and into the 2000s.

The most recent sighting in Trinity County was in 2009 at Big Bear Lake. In this sighting, a man claimed he encountered a strange animal outside of his tent while camping. The witness saw only a silhouette but smelled “a horrible animal stench.”
