100’s of Volunteers Needed!! Love the outdoors and helping individuals with disabilities? We need YOU!
Volunteers provide assistance in the Pond area from putting worms on hooks, casting, to taking their catch (fish or turtle) off the hook. In the Range area, volunteers can be seen assisting in lining up a shot, to stabilizing a bow. In the Craft area, volunteers help with creating, painting, decorating, and everything in between to assist in creating the area’s coolest crafts! At lunchtime they can be seen assisting with carrying lunch to the table, opening water bottles, and feeding.
Fishing, target shooting with air pellet guns, .22 rifles, shotguns, cross and compound bows, wildlife education classes, crafts, and demonstrations from other people with disabilities on possible outdoor activities. This annual September event is free of charge to all participants, family members, guests, and volunteers. All equipment is provided, including fishing poles, guns and ammunition, bows and arrows, adaptive fishing belts, strong arms, gun rests for wheelchairs, interpreters for the deaf, and aides for those who need one-on-one attention.
Opening the doors for people with disabilities could lead to fulfilling dreams and moving beyond boundaries which are placed on them. It is our hope many people will know their dreams can come true – if they will dream, and then act upon those dreams.
