Beginning Camp

Campers will take the Hunters Education Course, and if they pass the test at the end of the week they will earn their Hunters Education Certificate. They will learn the material through lessons and presentations in the classroom, but even more importantly, through hands on experience on the range.

Advanced Camp

While attending advanced camp, campers will have a jam-packed week full of exciting outdoor activities. They will get to participate in all of the activities listed in beginning camp, but advanced camp takes it a step further by teaching the kids more in-depth skills in each area, and by teaching them practical skills that will be used when hunting in the outdoors.

A little about us

KOSC started in 1998 with one camp and 30 campers.  Over the next 25 years KOSC has blossomed into the most successful and interactive hunter education course in the state.  KOSC currently runs 10 camps each summer, with three locations and offers, Beginner, Advanced, and for the first time in 2022 an Advanced Camp II program.  For those who already have their Hunter’s Education Certificate, KOSC offers an advanced camp to hone their shooting skills and further their knowledge of the outdoors and an Advanced Camp II which offers even more challenging outdoor activities.  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 involved in the outdoors!

Testimonial

“Thank you so much to KOSC!  Without you we would not be doing any fun activities like archery, rifle, shotgun, 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! Shotgun is also really fun and I use the 20 gauge, shot fun was super fun and I would practice shooting everyday if I could.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!”
