Ages: 14-17

Cost: $540

Physical Activity Scale* = 2


Join us for a week centered on the NH 4-H Shooting Sports program. Certified instructors will help youth learn marksmanship, the safe and responsible use of firearms, and the basic principles of hunting. Core concepts will emphasize safety, ethical development, personal responsibility, and life-time recreational skills.

Disciplines will include archery, rifle, pistol, shotgun, and black powder. Campers will experience a lot of creative and fun shooting sports activities. The week will conclude with a fun shooting sports competition.

Previous shooting sports experience is preferred, but not essential.

Youth who are not truly interested in learning about shooting sports will be wise to select a week with a theme more to their liking. The theme of the week is shooting sports, but there is a core of traditional and fun activities that will always be a part of every camper’s experience. You’ll enjoy campfires, cabin skits, archery, fishing, swimming, and more. Join us and make new friends as you unplug and delight in the outdoors!

*The Activity Scale estimates the level of challenging physical activity each week. 1= some, 2=moderate, 3=lots
