Over Veterans Day weekend, Paschal High School’s YAL chapter hosted the first ever, “A Night in Utopia,” a one night camping trip just outside Fort Worth city limits. The trip was open to anyone who had ever signed up for YAL at one of our tabling events, and for $20, PHSYAL provided your food, drink, and tent!
Fort Worth is home to Backwoods, an outdoors equipment retail store. Backwoods offers guided expeditions to nearly every creek and cranny of the world. PHSYAL had a backwoods guide come out to teach an environmental survival seminar and lead a nature walk through the woods.
After our Nature Walk we gathered around a fire for dinner and our chapter president’s presentation for the evening: “How the environment would thrive in Ron Paul’s America.”
Finally, We enjoyed smores under the stars and listened to guitar around the campfire.
Our success can be measured by the 27 attendees, and the 24 who came to our next meeting on Wednesday!
Special Thanks to Backwoods and everyone who helped make last weekend such a success.Published in
