Youth Hunting Camp


Our youth hunting camp is for ages 10-17.  At Camp all of the students will be following a stringent schedule.  Listed below are the Educational Highlights of the Outdoor Youth Camp.

First Year Program

The goal of the Freshman Class is to obtain their Hunter Safety Certificate.  We will utilize certified instructors as well as modern training techniques, for our Hunter Education Classes. The freshman will also be introduced to their initial range activity, which includes small bore rifle, air rifle, pistol, archery, shotgun and muzzleloader.

Second Year Program

The Sophomore Class will learn primitive living techniques, survival skills, initial watercraft safety, the art of taxidermy, plus attend waterfowl and trapping clinics. This class will also revisit the various ranges, plus make their own knife.

Third Year Program

The Junior Class will pursue their Boater Safety Certificate.  Again, we will employ classroom and hands on training. The juniors will be motor boating on beautiful Leesville Lake.  This class will shoot an advanced archery 3D course, plus visit the  pistol, air rifle, muzzleloader and  shotgun ranges.

Fourth Year Program

This Senior Class will attend a Gun Dog and Pheasant Clinic in preparation for their Pheasant Hunt Field Trial Over Dogs, in Ohio’s Rolling Hills. Other activities include high ropes, kayaking, cooking and a map reading course.  The seniors will also attend turkey and deer clinics.
