Trap Shooting

Home | About Us | Activities | Trap Shooting

Trap shooting is one of the three traditional disciplines of clay pigeon shooting and is considered one of the most technically challenging facets of recreational and competitive shooting.

This skill is available for campers ages 13 and older and caters to all skill levels. And because ensuring camper safety is our highest priority, we carefully assess firearms experience and maturity level throughout the skill training.

During trap shooting instruction, campers learn to use shotguns to shoot at aerial moving targets. Campers will master a solid foundation of firearms safety and gain exposure to proper shooting technique. Campers also have the opportunity to earn a ranking certificate from the NRA based on their skill level upon completion.

Please note that trap shooting does require an additional fee.
