Camp Iron Sights' Youth Hunting Camp is a very unique opportunity for boys and girls ages 14 - 22.
Earn your Hunter Education Certification and shoot a Black Bear on the same trip!
This camp is the full package for the young hunter. Whether you are new to hunting, or just enjoy it and want to improve your skills, Camp Iron Sights has a great program for you. And what better place then at Alaska's Oldest Hunting Lodge - Rainy Pass Lodge!
After flying in a bush plane (125 air miles to the lodge from Anchorage), you will spend the first part of your trip earning your Hunter Education Certification. When you pass, you will have your official certification from the Alaska Department of Fish & Game HIT Program. We also hope to provide Bow Hunting Education in the near future.
The last part of the trip you will spend the evenings with an Alaskan Hunting Guide for a chance to harvest a Black Bear of your own.
Through out the camp you will also have opportunities to shoot a variety of rifles, pistols, and shotguns at a variety of distances and targets. Archery, horsmanship, canoeing, kyaking, wildlife conservation, 2nd amendment discussion, and wilderness survival will also be among your wilderness activities. You may also benefit from learning proper game care after harvest and some hunting tips from top Alaskan Guides.
You will get a tour of the on-site museum ( "A History of Hunting and Guns for over 400 years" ), provided by Alaska's lowest numbered Registered Guide who is still guiding: Buckey Winkley - Registered Guide #34 (Over 50 years of Guiding).
Lessons and Stories from: Steve Perrins - Master Guide #123 and owner of Rainy Pass Lodge (Over 40 years of Guiding).
This is the full package Youth Hunting Camp, In Alaska, at the Oldest's Hunting Lodge. We hope you can join us for this once in a life time adventure!
