Northern Express Gift Guide

A big thanks to Rick Coates for the CAMP™ write up in the Northern Express Gift Guide

Camp Board games are making a big comeback. As families seek more quality time together, “old-fashioned” board games are regaining their popularity. So are new ones, and one of the hottest in North America is Camp. What is cool is that Camp was developed by Education Outdoors Inc, in Eastport (between Elk Rapids and Charlevoix). Both children and adults learn fun facts about the great outdoors by playing Camp. The game is designed to grow with the player, starting at Level One questions, which primarily involve the identification of animals. As the players increase their knowledge of the outdoors, they grow into the higher level questions. Parents and children can play against each other to see who gets to “Camp first.” Created and developed by outdoor Tim Paczensy, Education Outdoors Inc. is showing tremendous growth since opening in 2005. “As young professionals my wife and I almost moved back downstate a few years ago to look for greener financial pastures,” said Jesse DenHerder, vice president of marketing and product design. “Then Education Outdoors came along and we stayed. The growth has been phenomenal and we are having an amazing fourth quarter.” Their board game is sold all over North America (available in Northern Michigan at toy stores and most outdoor shops).

Moose Madness Family Festival October 17-19

A big thanks to the Lake Superior Trading Company for supporting our CAMP™ game at this years Moose Madness Festival in Grand Marais, MN. They will be playing CAMP™ at 11, 3 and 4 on Friday and Saturday and 10, 11 and 2 on Sunday. Small prizes for participants!

About the Festival
Grand Marais is crazy for Moose Madness! It's rutting season, and signs of moose are all over town - especially in shops, cafes, lodging facilities and many locations outdoors. Our favorite alces alces, Murray, will be around town for the much sought-after photo opportunity, and moose-related activities are planned for everyone!

Schedule of Events
The moose medallion search begins Friday morning and continues throughout the weekend until the medallion is found, worth 2 nights' lodging and a restaurant certificate. The East Bay Suites shuttle makes several trips up the Gunflint Trail, so you'll have the opportunity to join in on a moose quest. Moose writing contests are for kids of all ages (haiku, limerick or essay), and the secret word scavenger hunt runs both Friday and Saturday. Drury Lane Books features the Muffin Man and Moose-a-Rama, and the Grand Marais Art Colony offers special art projects Friday and Sunday. The Lake Superior Trading Post is running a new trivia game for ages 4 and up called Camp - try it! Stop in Northern Light Jewelry and Gifts to make your moosetacular bracelet either Friday or Saturday, and remember that the Pie Place becomes the Mocha Moose Cafe and Poetry Salon - a free slice of pie awarded to those who read some poetry aloud. Joynes Ben Franklin (America's most unusual BF) sponsors the coloring contest, and Sivertson Gallery and Lake Superior Trading Post both have Count the Moose Droppings contests...nice! More events are in the works, and the daily schedule will be available here by October 8th. Check it out!
