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 focuses on waterfowl ecology and management! This intensive program is best suited for youth ages 13-14 who are eager to learn and have a passion for nature, the outdoors, and/or hunting. Campers will study and learn the importance of aquatic ecosystems, waterfowl biology, natural resources management, land and water stewardship, and conservation. Wingshooting will be practiced extensively, tying into discussions on hunting skills, safety, and ethics. A strong emphasis is placed on developing and improving leadership skills, public speaking, communication and team building. After a week at camp, participants will leave not only with the knowledge and experience needed in order to get started hunting waterfowl, but also with a clear understanding of the importance of being a conservation advocate.
