RILEY WILDERNESS YOUTH CAMP
Each summer the SCI Novi Chapter sponsors 60 youths for a week long hunting/education program at the Michigan Out-of-Doors "Camp for Kids". This camp stands out among the rest due to the emphasis placed on engaging youth in the outdoors and connecting them to the environment. They pride themselves on a curriculum that teaches outdoor skills such as conservation and environmental sciences, target shooting, hunter safety, backpacking, wilderness survival, forest management, watercraft safety and much more. Each youth will be given the training needed to earn their Hunter's Safety and Archery Safety Certificates. More information at the Michigan Out-of-Doors Youth Camp website.
