The 24th Annual Youth Archery Camp for Region 9 (Niagara, Erie, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Wyoming and Allegany counties) is all set to be held July 27-29 at the West Falls Conservation Society, 55 Bridge St., West Falls. Each year, up to 30 youngsters ages 12 to 15 are offered an opportunity to partake in an extensive education program focused on bowhunting and outdoor camping. It is free to the public.
There are some stipulations. For example, if you already have your New York State Bowhunter Education Certificate you are not eligible to apply. This camp gives participants the opportunity to become certified. It will also give instruction on ethics, sportsmanship and regulations. You will learn about tree stand safety and tracking skills. There is a full agenda of outdoor activities.
Anyone interested in applying should fill out an application and answer the two essay questions by May 27. For more information contact Adam Ziccardi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
