Summertime 24/7

It’s that time of year where our kids use our electronic reporting and paging system to let us know what’s going on in their lives.  Because of vacations and student travel, we find it necessary to allow our kids no matter where they are or circumstances they may be in to have a lifeline to us.  We take great pride in that word access– not only giving our youth access to the outdoors but giving  them access to caring adults when they are needed.   

How many youth programs do you know that are open 24/7?


A Rare Bird..

Congratulations to all of the academy students that got to challenge the wild turkey this season.  A special congratulations to Jared for his smoke phased turkey.  What a bird!



When you compete against Mother Nature you never know what to expect. The MossyOak cameramen spent some time with us at full fan lodge. They flew up for youth turkey season and were able to film Thursday at academy, Friday around Allentown and Saturday morning during the hunt. Look for the hunt to make history on  mossy oak’s Hunting the Country on The Outdoor Channel.  We will announce air times.


Ahhh Turkey Season


Talking a second language can helpful in any situation so when it comes to talking to the king of spring we take great pride in doing just that –telling them to come on over.


Some Pizza for the Party

 After a long day at school and putting in extra hours at academy it’s nice to reward the kids with pizza and a little down time.  We take our engagement time pretty seriously but every once in a while we take some time to appreciate each other over a “meal.”


A Real Easter Egg Hunt


We pride ourselves on thinking out of the box when it comes to teaching youth about the outdoors.  Well we had a chance to revisit an activity we use to do many years ago.  Our Easter egg hunt was always a big hit and we had the opportunity to introduce it to a new group of students.  Finding eggs in the woods and calling a shot at varied distances makes for a great holiday activity and allows students to practice their shooting techniques at the same time.


Dinner and Some Shooting


P3210020 P3210011Everyone looks forward to going out with friends and family.  Our kids do too.  Thanks to the Lehigh Valley Chapter of SCI for hosting our kids for an evening of fun, freindship and firearms.  When our kids get to feel very special eating off real silverware, drinking from real glasses and shaking hands with people that truly care about them.  So on with the show knowing that experience will be had again and again if the child wants it and proves it through their efforts at Academy, in school and at home.


Building Bridges


Not sure if you want  kids to learn about guns and hunting?  A lot of  people feel that way especially in urban environments.  It’s our hope that WE can educate youth about the joys of shooting and the outdoors.  We never want to see young people hurt so we continue to share our mission with whomever will listen.  It’s education that saves lives  and its education we will keep giving so that our kids can grow into healthy, well rounded adults.
