It Starts Again

IMG_6574Nothing like starting off the Camp Compass School season with a deer hunt.  When an adolescent makes the decision to commit to a goal for  almost 3 years and it finally produces an outcome beyond belief it can be an emotional event.  Well,  at Camp Compass, we thrive on that emotional euphoria of young men and women striving for their personal best. Hey boys congrats on the deer hunt and the girls that preceded you will want to compare stories.  We love when our kids bring their A game to their lives and to others!

Sorry, It Has Been A Bit…

P6150190When summer comes things should slow down but they don’t for us.  Whether fishing, working on  next year’s curriculum or shooting the days just don’t seem to be long enough.  Can you say BUSY?

The days are getting longer….

ipad all 465Now that turkey season has ended we go into a transition that will have us out on the water a little more and developing  new ideas for next year’s curriculum.  As the days get longer and the sun shines more we get excited about spending more time exposing our younger  kids to the wonders of nature. Enjoy the sun and the longer days because before we all know it  will be time for change that will bring shorter days and cooler night.

Remember That Kid Gage?

IMG_6680We love  having the odds against us.  We guess that’s why when Gage decided to hunt turkey we just had to say  YES!  So with lots of support from mossy oak, IScope, Winchester, Cabelas and Pipeline Ridge we made a plan that would  allow Gage a chance to compete with the wily Longbeard.  The rest is history!

Ahhh, Turkey Season

IMG_6760 reducedIMG_6691It’s that time of year where we get the most excited.  Spring is here and that brings the chance for our students to learn about and hunt turkeys.  It takes our mentors weeks of preparation to offer our kids the best chance at a once in a lifetime opportunity.  We think the pictures speak for themselves.   Mother Nature thanks for sharing your bounty with us.

Another Successful State Test

IMG_5816For those who think state testing is just done in school, think again.  At Camp Compass we require a months study time from students who want to move on to the upper levels of the program and  they must pass the Pennsylvania Hunter Exam.  When a student is preparing for their hunter safety test it can be a very scary task because they come to us with no background knowledge on the subject matter.  Nevertheless, it’s all in the preparation and the picture shows the results!

The Ultimate Double…
