The Apprentice Hunter program is an excellent opportunity for young students who enjoy spending time in nature and want to learn more about hunting!
Hosted by the University of Maine, this camp is led by certified 4H Shooting Sports Instructors. It is designed to provide hands-on experience with hunting skills. Students can expect to learn hunting tactics for turkey, upland birds, whitetail deer, and other game. There will be plenty of workshops focusing on shooting skills, hunting opportunities, animal behavior, and of course, safety. While no previous experience with hunting is required, completion of a hunter safety course is highly recommended. Students can also expect to go on an actual bird hunt and learn to cook their harvest. There will also be plenty of traditional camp activities such as canoeing, ropes course, hiking, kayaking, and swimming.
