CLASSROOM & FIELD EXPERIENCE
While some portions of the training are taught in a classroom setting, many are taught “hands-on” out in the field. Students will get to handle real firearms (unloaded), experience treestands & blinds, take up a simulated blood trail, navigate a compass course, and hone their skills on the pellet gun and 3-D archery ranges with experienced instructors.
Outside of the formal programs, other activities are available for the kids. Recreation time includes swimming, Frisbee, archery, pellet gun range, video shooting simulator, Froggy’s snack bar, or just plain relaxing. Special evening programs may include guest speakers from local law enforcement, wildlife experts with live animals, or a deer-viewing hayride. Each night is capped off with a good old-fashioned campfire including stories, skits and songs.
