Oswego County 4-H Summer Shooting Sports

  • Wednesday, July 13, 2022, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Wednesday, July 20, 2022, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Oswego County 4-H is now accepting applications for their Summer Shooting Sports Program!

The program, led by New York State 4-H Shooting Sports Program trained volunteers and their community volunteers, is open to all boys and girls ages 12 to 19. This summer program has two options to choose from:

  • Rifle, beginning July 13th at North Sportsman's Club in West Monroe, or
  • a Sampler of shotgun and muzzleloading, starting July 20th. Its first three sessions are at Leatherstocking Rod and Gun Club in Scriba and the last two classes are at Lock, Stock, and Barrel in Volney.

Both five- to six-week programs are being held on Wednesday nights from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. A minimal fee of $30.00, covers materials and safety equipment. Partial scholarships are provided through a donation from the Oswego County Federation of Sportsman’s Clubs.

The 4-H Shooting Sports Rifle Program provides a positive experience for youth and promotes firearm safety. The program is also valuable for helping youth develop self-confidence, personal discipline, responsibility, teamwork, self-esteem and sportsmanship. The Oswego County Shooting Sports Rifle Program is not a hunter safety education program.

Previous experience or firearm ownership is not necessary for youth to participate in this hands-on learning experience. The Oswego County 4-H Program and its instructors, certified through the New York State 4-H Shooting Sports Program, will provide all firearms and necessary equipment. The instructors are volunteers who are chosen for their ability to teach and their skill at relating to youth.
