Conservation programs have been a long-running part of the summer camp experience at Greenland Point. This new and exciting program will help you build skills for hunting beyond the hunters safety program. Learn skills in scent masking, working with the wind, game calling, advanced tracking, reading habitat and animal behavior, creating effective blinds, using effective camouflage and so much more. Campers will have the opportunity to try out several different styles of hunting well still enjoying the traditional camp activities like fishing, swimming, and boating.
Week #3 7/16/23-7/21/2023
Please note: The Hunter apprentice program does not include certification for hunter safety. If you are looking for a hunter safety certification please see our Conservation Camp programs.
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 provides complete instruction in the shooting sports discipline programs that we offer.
