Camper at the shooting range

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 Greenland Point 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 Greenland Point is very familiar with the wide variety of equipment here and competently provides complete instruction in the shooting sports discipline programs that we offer.
