The 3nd Annual Women’s Shooting Clinic at the Craig Family Camp in Indiana was held on July 22nd.
Jim, Leann and Jack Craig founded the Craig Family Camp to create a place for young kids and novice shooters to learn firearm safety, the hunters role in conservation, shooting ethics and skills to shoot a variety of firearms. The camp is supported by community volunteers that work to ensure attendees have an excellent experience.
The Craig Family took home The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Conservationist of the Year Award in 2015 for their substantial contributions and impact in the areas of land protection and stewardship, hunting heritage and other RMEF mission priority areas. The foundation that the camp is building in Indiana is evident within the community of young sportsmen and women.
This year at the camp, we helped nearly 50 women learn to shoot rifles, shotguns and pistols, all in a safe controlled environment with knowledgeable mentors and instructors. “Some of the ladies had never shot a firearm, but all left the clinic with huge smiles on their faces, armed with new skills and confidence to become more active in shooting sports and a greater supporters of our second amendment.”
At this year’s clinic, the ladies rotated between three stations: .22 rimfire, shotgun, pistol, gun cleaning & safety, and concealed carry options where they will receive hands-on firearms instruction.
A huge thank you goes out to Cabela's for your continued support to make this a great event along with Dead Down Wind, Ruger and Hornady. We are already looking forward to 2018 camp.
