Youth Field Day

On Saturday June 3rd, we hosted yet another Youth Field Day! This event, run by the “York Area Sportsmen for Youth”, hosts up to 200 kids aged 8-15, exposing them to a variety of outdoor events. IWLA #67 supplies the venue, our grounds. 

There are a dozen or so stations, from shooting sports (trap, .22 rifle, muzzle loader and archery), to canoeing, fishing, a woods obstacle run and presentations from Game Commission Officers, trappers, Ducks Unlimited and others. The kids are sent home with goodie bags, tired, dirty, fed and happy. 

The best part? Thanks to the volunteer efforts of the York Area folks, a bunch of IWLA67 members and many local monetary sponsors, this event it free to all participants. Advanced registration is required, so look for announcements on our website in early 2018.
