JAKES Spotlight

The NWTF started the JAKES (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship) program as a way to give youth up to 12 years old the chance to explore the outdoors through hundreds of fun activities. For those teenagers from 13 - 17 years old, Xtreme JAKES provides opportunities, challenges & experiences more in line with their abilities.

Veteran Spotlight
