We need you

Be an ambassador

Let's face it, the success of the Academy depends upon individuals that care about  it, its kids and it's mission.  It's time we start to ask for those like-minded individuals, that believe in our fight, to pick up a torch and walk beside current torch bearers.  If  YOU want to help us by spreading the word through community events and via the world wide web and can help us find the much needed dollars to keep our doors open please fill in the contact form and/or visit Hunting Awareness and  we'll get you set up to become an ambassador.

Spread happiness

It’s our passion for children that brings a new found quality to their lives. We believe that every child, no matter what circumstances they may be in, should have the opportunity to experience positive people and activities. Therefore, we are constantly spending time with students in the field, water, and in the classroom. We can prove that our students feel like they belong to a family. It is vital in today’s tough environments that we as adults provide not only advice but an ear as well.

Disclaimer: We can not be held responsible for how good you'll feel after you've helped a child.

Every once in a lifetime, a truly unique idea challenges us to give back. Your chance is here.

The regional growth, and indeed the survival of Camp Compass, points to the willingness of local individuals to participate. Without the voluntary involvement of local sportsmen, the best laid plans of any such program would not succeed. It’s been noted that most committed outdoorsmen, for various reasons, are generous by nature and seem readily disposed to share their hard-won skills.
