Saturday was dedicated to firearm lessons, which are a popular attraction at the camp each year. After an explanation of the shooting rules, the youths learned how to handle handguns, .22’s, muzzleloaders and paintball guns, and learned about trapshooting and archery.
“They get to shoot every type of gun, basically, and everybody gets the chance to try them out,” said Lainton.
The camp gives the kids the chance to learn how to shoot in a safe environment from certified instructors, he said.
“We always say it’s the most fun day for everybody, but also the most serious day as well,” said Lainton. “Safety is by far No. 1.”
