Become a Bullet TODAY!

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…

Feeling Special

P7310192Youth don’t get to use real glasses and linens during school events.  So, when the Lehigh Valley Chapter of SCI invited our students to their annual convention they were in for quite a surprise.  Friday night was full of new experiences for our first level students and full of renewed memories for a few of our upper level teens.  At Camp Compass we believe very strongly in breaking bread with others to allow our students the opportunity to learn more about those that support them.  Can you say, FIRST CLASS!

Look Out Turkeys

P5180501IMG_5145[1]Well it looks like another Christmas wish is on its  to way of happening.  Zachi, my superhero, who passed away last year, wanted to hunt turkey and we pulled it off.  Now another incredible kid wants to do the same.  Over the break Gage started on his journey to become a turkey hunter.  In the next few weeks,  he will be studying and be working with his new hunting buddy Landon to accomplish what many would say is impossible.  What everyone who works with any kid in our academy eventually finds out is they refuse to loose.  So turkeys look out this spring.
