Conservation Education-Hunter Safety: Archery

Offered in partnership with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, Tanglewood’s Conservation Camps are an exciting approach to woods safety in a specially designed setting with a focus on ethical target sports practice. What better way to learn how to move through the woods like a fox than at camp? Our hands-on instruction offers a unique opportunity to learn conservation education, wildlife tracking, map and compass, archery or firearms safety, hands-on skills, and woods wisdom in a safe and supported environment.

Programs are offered in a day camp setting with participants operating as their own independent pod. All programs include canoe safety and paddling basics while also enjoying all the traditional camp activities Tanglewood is known for. Each successful participant will earn their Maine Hunter Safety Certificate in one or two skill sets, with a focus on archery, honored in all 50 states, and good for life. 

Game wardens and Search and Rescue Dogs will be special guests each week. 

Maine residents who are first-time participants may be eligible for a one-time $150 scholarship funded by the Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife.
