Take a kid hunting. How many times have you heard that message preached before? It’s much easier to say than to actually do. Sadly, hunters seem to be retiring from the sport faster than we’re recruiting the next generation. That’s why we’re really excited to see the Youth Bowhunter Camp making the rounds this year across the country. There’s an endless supply of camps for kids these days. From horseback riding and sports camps to band camps and everything in between. Unfortunately, the options are far fewer for the young boys and girls that are itching to dive into the world of archery and bowhunting. The Youth Bowhunter Camp was designed for these young men and women. This camp has been hosted in venues across the country, including Montana, Nebraska, Arizona, New Mexico, and Tennessee.
From summer camps to weekend retreats, and even day camps, the Youth Bowhunter Camp is introducing boys and girls to the sport of archery and bowhunting through an exciting camp experience like no other. The mission of the camp is to educate and equip students at all levels, regardless of whether they’re shooting a bow for the first time, or have been bowhunting for years.
What Will Your Child Do at the Youth Bowhunter Camp?
As mentioned, all the activities at the Youth Bowhunter Camp are designed to educate and equip your child as they begin or further their bowhunting journey. Fun and interactive games and activities keep things exciting throughout this life changing camp experience. Your child will also get a look at the best of the best in hunting gear and equipment during their time at camp.
Depending on the camp location, the Youth Bowhunter Camp activities include: 3D archery, game calling, decoy tactics, ground blind hunting, Blood Trail Challenge, bowfishing basics, treestand safety, shot placement, trail cameras, Light ’em Up Night Shoot, swimming, canoeing, fishing, climbing wall, survival skills, seminars with the pros, and much more.
