4-H Shooting Sports Camp (ages 13-15)
Shooting sports is one of the fastest growing program areas in Maine and “Shooting Sports” is a new approach that offers a fully comprehensive shooting sports experience! Campers will have the opportunity to learn 4 different shooting disciplines: Archery, Rifle, Shotgun, and Muzzle-loader (Black-powder) Each day will have a different focus, offering the most in depth shooting experience ever offered at Greenland Point. Certified 4-H Shooting Sports Instructors will lead these shooting activities and we always focus on safety and responsibility we hit the range. Campers will learn how to clean and service each type of bow or firearm. Other activities will certainly be included such as swimming, boating, and other traditional camp activities.
No previous shooting experience is required.
Week #3 – 7/19/20 to 7/24/20
Because The University of Maine defines firearms and archery equipment as weapons, and has a strict weapons policy for the safety of all, and for liability and insurance reasons, camp program participants are asked not to bring their personal shooting sports equipment to Bryant Pond 4-H Camp & Learning Center without prior authorization from the Camp Director or the Maine 4-H Shooting Sports Program Coordinator. The 4-H Shooting Sports instruction team at Bryant Pond is very familiar with the wide variety of equipment here, and competently provide complete instruction in the shooting sports discipline programs that we offer.
