McCormick and Yaak students learned how to pan for gold, make a compass, and shoot arrows, along with other various outdoors skills during the One-Room Rendezvous, a two day outdoor workshop, Wednesday.

Stephanie Wallace, a McCormick teacher teaching kindergarten through 3rd grade, said this yearís theme for the rendezvous was survival and outdoors.

Living in Montana, people ďneed to know that kind of stuff,Ē she said.

Students spent the night and camped out in tents, she said. The goal of the program is to help bring the community together and teach students different skills.

The schools brought in Smokey Bear to make sure students would know how to effectively put out a fire, she said.

Troy Volunteer Ambulance, McCormick Volunteer Fire Department and the Forest Service all came to help show and teach students about their jobs.
