A little about us

KOSC started in 1998 with one camp and 30 campers.  Over the years KOSC has blossomed into the most successful and interactive hunter education course in the state.  

2022 is KOSC’s 25th year of operation, and we announced the “Outdoor Conservation Explorer’s” program, the first of its kind to give youth a path to becoming an adult hunter.  We pride ourselves on giving youth the opportunity to become more involved in the outdoors & more knowledgeable about conservation!

Testimonials

“Thank you so much to KOSC!  Without you we would not be doing any fun activities like archery, hunter safety, kayaking and fishing.  It was epic fun.  Archery was one of my favorites because I have not done archery in years and archery was fun to me! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!”
