4-H to Host Youth Shooting Sports Camp
4-H Camp Piedmont will be hosting a shooting sports camp June 7-9. Youth ages 9-13 will have the opportunity to experience a variety of shooting sport education in a camp setting. Participants will select from one of five disciplines – archery, advanced archery, rifle .22 rimfire, shotgun, or air pistol.
Camp Piedmont, in Eastern Ohio is located approximately 12 miles north of Interstate 70 in Belmont County. The camp is a wonderful setting to learn all about shooting sports, make a craft, enjoy nature, boating, swimming and hiking. Campers will enjoy dining and singing together, games, dancing and a traditional campfire as well. More information about Camp Piedmont can be found on their website: www.4hcamppiedmont.osu.edu
Camp Piedmont is staffed with summer staff to help promote the learning experience and trained counselors will work with small groups of campers and reside with them in the cabins. Extension staff and certified shooting sports instructors round out the camp staff and planning committee.
Last year the camp attracted 56 youth from all over Ohio. Youth don’t have to be in 4-H to attend this camp. Even though it is staffed by 4-H certified volunteer instructors, the camp is open to all youth.
The camp registration form is available from any OSU Extension Office or online at www.monroe.osu.edu by clicking “4-H Camp”. Registration is due May 17.
