Two Vermilion Community College students are out to gather some campfire stories, while helping the kids of the Northland.

Ricky Vennevold and John Plettner are going on an expedition around the Arrowhead. They're calling it "Tales of the Trail," and the funds they raise will create a program at the YMCA's Camp Miller next summer.

The two outdoor education majors will be taking kids on wilderness adventures, where they can gather their own tales.

"Every time I go to the Boundary Waters, since I was 12 years old, you always come back with a story," said Vennevold. "And it's sharing those stories with people that really sparks an interest in others and gets people intrigued and interested in having experiences of their own."

The expedition around the Arrowhead is serving as an internship for Vennevold and Plettner. Donations can be made through their Tales of the Trail website.
