The Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center in Jefferson County is offering weekly day-camp sessions this summer for youth ages 10-15 who are interested in hunting and related outdoor activities.

During “hunt camp,” participants will learn about Florida’s great hunting heritage and be taught such skills as wildlife identification, survival, first aid and tree-stand safety. Campers also will learn conservation, land stewardship and about hunting laws and ethics.

Participants will spend extensive time on several gun ranges, shooting shotguns, rifles and muzzleloaders, and have the option of earning their hunter safety certification while they’re at camp, if they choose to do so.

There will be four weeks of camp, all during the month of June, and the sessions are June 4-8, June 11-15, June 18-22 and June 25-29. Hours are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Fridays.

The cost for each weekly session is $175, and parents may register their children at For more information, contact Kelly Langston at
