What to Expect:
You’ll learn the basics of “driving” a canoe, including the draw, the pry and the J strokes.
Expert anglers will be our instructors. With a little luck you may even catch the “Big’n” of the day.
Shooting Sports –
Instruction will be given in three different areas: Rifle, shotgun, and archery.
Instruction in building survival bracelets and painting your own camp T-shirt.
Field Trip –
Milford Fish Hatchery and Nature Center
No summertime camp is complete without a daily swim. You can count on it at the Outdoor Adventure Camp. Every day you’ll go for a dip in the swimming pool to wash off the prairie dust. Be sure to bring your swimming suit.
How much does the OAC Cost?
