Dear Board of Niagara County Federation of Sportsmanís Clubs,

My name is David Leathers and I went to Conservation Camp last summer as your guest. I would like to thank you for sponsoring me to go. One thing that I learned was yellow birch contains flammable oils that make it the best type of wood to use to start a fire. Ever since I was little, my father would take me hunting and on camping trips so many of the activities were things I had seen and done before. But I never get bored of the stunning beauty of natureís surroundings. The name of my cabin was Great Blue Heron and my leader read stories to my cabin and me at night. It was a great experience and Iím glad to think that other kids should have the opportunity that I did.
