We wanted to say we are thankful for all of the adults that have given their time, resources and donations to our efforts. Camp Compass is a little different in its approach and in its misson to help kids find their way in the world. We hope you will take a minute to hear hundreds of kids saying the word Thank You in your mind. Together we will continue to be great and “ful” of optimism.
When we get a chance to reward our students sometimes Mother Nature throws us a curve ball. This past weekend she did just that by providing some rain with our pheasant hunt. That means changing the game plan and clothing to suit the situation. Our students learned a lot about wind and bird flushes and caught on fairly quickly after the first few birds used the gusts to get out of harms way in a flash. The dogs did a great job and the statement of the day by a students was “I just would have stayed in bed on this rainy day instead I had the best hunt yet with Camp Compass.” We are always glad we can get some kids up and out to do something beyond their normal routine.
Most of you know thatCamouflage has been with us for nearly 20 years. Their clothing is our uniform of choice when we venture into the woods. Reecently, our kids chose to tye-dye a few shirts with a background lesson in camo. and nature’s colors. It’s nice to see kids get excited about learning and come away with something they can show off.

More pictures can be found on the Two Million Bullets Facebook Page. Thanks to all of the Bullets that helped make this event a special day for some very deserving students!
Nothing 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!
Now 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.
We 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 , 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!
