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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
