Youth Mentoring Program

You Must Have Your Trapping Licence To Participate 

A FREE Youth Trapper Mentoring Program to assist youth that do not have anyone to help them get off to a good start and receive the mentoring to ensure success and training. This is a 5-day program teaching the hands-on of setting traps, and handling fur, building their own forming boards and in field training for safe handling of trapping equipment. 

We will travel mainly by foot with a snow sled to pull across the trapping area. This will provide the students the opportunity to set and capture the fur bearers,  how to skin, flesh and board the fur they catch.


As part of this program each student would receive trap safety’s and setting tools along with all the safety gear needed to work with the traps and equipment. 

The students will take home their forming boards made during the program, as well as their safety equipment and a small starter kit.  This equipment will help them get started in the trapping industry.


This program will run during the December 2020 trapping season to ensure a variety of furbearers during the 5 days on the trapline.

Students that have completed the 3 levels of our Trapper Youth Camp will be given priority in this program.


Program Dates are December 12th to 18th, 2021 and is limited to 8 participants


This program is being held at our new trapline half an hour north of our main offices here in Westlock. 

We are looking forward to seeing you.
