Target SMART Camp has a new look. SMART stands for Shotgun, Muzzleloader, Archery, & Rifle Training and this year the adventure will involve all of those and more. In past years 4-H members would choose one of those disciplines and spend the entire camp focusing on just that sport. This year every camper will get to experience each of the shooting sports as well as the discipline we call Hunting and Outdoor Skills. There is no requirement that individuals be in an active county 4-H shooting sports program. From first shot fundamentals to advanced shooting skills and techniques, Target SMART Camp is for youth at every skill level. Also new this year is the ability to campers to complete their Tennessee Hunter Education Certification, which is required for them to hunt once they reach age 10.
The schedule has been arranged to minimize the impact on school attendance. Arrival at Ridley 4-H Center is scheduled for 5:30-6:00 pm on Thursday, October 1st and adjournment is 9:00am on Sunday, October 4th. Target SMART Camp is open to youth in 5-9 grade.
