I Want to be a Packer

Enjoy this video on the Packer Program from Video Mike!

Continuing on the overwhelming success of the “I Want to be a Packer” program, the Mule Days Youth Committee has once again risen to the challenges presented. The first challenge is to engage more youth in the world of mules and by extension, Mule Days. Next, it is crucial to encourage youth participation in the great outdoors, so missing in the lives of urbanized youth of today. Then put the two together – mules, the outdoors – especially in the majestic High Sierra, at Bishop’s backyard. What better way to see that country than to take a mule on a pack trip or even become a packer! The final challenge is to get youth involved at Mule Days – whether as a spectator, a competitor, or a fan.

This year the Mule Days will continue “I Want to be a Packer”! Look for more fun times, highlights include:

  • Stop by our “I Want to be a Packer” booth – get connected for all events right here! Schedules will be posted at the booth.
  • Junior Packer Arena – this will be the central location for all activities – check it out in front of the Home Economics Building near the Miller Stage, right next to the booth.
  • Events for our littlest packers include stick mule rodeos, fishing & casting lessons, and the very popular clown school
