Outdoor Days in Union Gap Teach Outdoor Skills

Posted: Updated:

UNION GAP, WA. -- Cabela's is teaming up with local organizations to put on the Great Outdoor Days festival. 

Saturday attendees were able to learn how to fish and were taught about cooking in the outdoors. The purpose of the event is to inspire younger generations to get outside.

"Don't be a couch potato," John Craig of the Boy Scouts of America said. "Get out there, have fun, meet new people. I met hundreds of new people today and just had a blast."

Sunday the event includes a B-B gun shoot house, GPS navigation training and a water safety lesson from local firefighters.
