Springer spaniels like this one named Cheena bounced through the prairie grass at the kennels after retrieving a pigeon during the flushing dogs station. There were five other stations, pointing dogs, dog first aid, a nature walk, shotgun demonstration and skeet range.

Jay Johnson, camp coordinator, explained the proper shotgun technique to one of the campers at the kennel's skeet range.
The campers took to the field to watch the flushing dog demonstration. Mark Haglin, co-owner of the kennels, said the day attracted the most campers, 58 total, in its nine-year history. Haglin said the event has always been a fun day for the campers and volunteers. "The whole idea is to expose kids to outdoor kind of things."
