Outdoor Adventure Camp: Bowhunting Skills
Outdoor Adventure Camp (OAC), at the Ocala Conservation Center, occupies a 57-acre peninsula, rich in history and wildlife on Lake Eaton within the Ocala National Forest. Facilities are rustic, yet comfortable, with air-conditioned cabins and dining hall. This is an overnight camp.
This program expands on archery and bowhunting where Pathfinders leaves off. After completing the Hunter Safety certification, campers can participate in this exciting archery and bowhunting skills adventure. Campers will enjoy several nationally recognized and innovative programs. The "Explore Bowhunting" curriculum introduces participants to the many challenges and rewards of archery and bowhunting. These skills are taught in a fun atmosphere through interacting in various gamed and exercises designed to teach problem solving and decision making. Additionally, campers have the opportunity to acquire certification in the National Bowhunters Education Foundation's bowhunting course. This certification is required by some states in order to bowhunt there. Campers also participate in fishing, canoeing, swimming and other traditional camp activities.
