Trijicon is pleased to again support the NRA Whittington Center Adventure Camp, held annually in Raton, New Mexico. Now celebrating its 25th Anniversary, the program provides young men and women from all walks of life with an opportunity to learn about the shooting sports and safe firearms handling while experiencing the thrill of the hunt, all under the guidance of the most skilled firearms instructors and outdoor specialists in the nation.
Trijicon has donated many of the program’s optics, including its AccuPoint riflescopes, ACOG scopes and RMR red dot sights to help NRA instructors teach the safe fundamentals of handgun, rifle, muzzleloader and shotgun shooting. The camp extends this experience far beyond range basics, strengthening each camper through training in such activities as wilderness map reading, hunting camp preparation, animal tracking, care of harvested game and an understanding of wildlife management techniques — all in lessons designed to encourage leadership and build team spirit.
“We are delighted to support the 25th Anniversary camp. Being able to be a part of this program, and investing in our future recreational shooters by supporting the camp is something that we have whole-heartedly embraced,” said Susan Belanger, Trijicon’s Senior Marketing Coordinator.
Each Adventure Camp culminates in the Trijicon-sponsored hunting skills competition.
The course is designed to present campers with real-world hunting scenarios in a simulated experience in which they must verify proper licenses, safely navigate the trails with rifles and ammo and determine if the shot is ethical and if appropriate, execute a lethal shot. Each winner is presented with a new Trijicon AccuPoint riflescope for their achievements.
The 2013 NRA Whittington Center Adventure Camp is underway, and is already booked to capacity for 2014. Registration for 2015 opens July 1, 2013. Please visit www.nrawc.org/adventure/index.html for more information.
