Week Three: Campouts and Shoot-Outs

Steve Scott

It was a rather calm week with only two camps going on, Expedition Outdoors in the morning and Camp .22 in the afternoon. It was a great group of kids this week and a great group of leaders. 

In Expedition Outdoors, campers got to learn how to build fires, go on a scavenger hunt that included giving Clayton a hug (he had 17 kids hanging on him!! It was awesome!), they got to learn archery and riflery, test out their navigational skills with a treasure hunt, and they got to camp out in tents that they learned how to assemble. During the campout, Nate told scary stories, they roasted s'mores around the campfire and got to fish until bedtime at 11PM. When I arrived to work at 8 on Thursday morning, campers were roasting their breakfast over the campfire with huge smiles on their faces. They had a blast! This camp was led by Delaney and Nate with Will, Angelo and Emily volunteering with them. 

We have a new friend around here: Ellie!! She loves the kids!

In Camp .22, campers got lots of instruction on safety and fun! Shooters got to shoot at a variety of targets this week, including paper airplanes, eggs, pop cans that exploded when they shot them, and cheese puffs (which also explode when you shoot them surprisingly) and many more. The last day featured a shooting gallery made up of many different types of targets and shooters get to pick what they want to shoot at. This camp was run by Clayton and Stephen with LiLi volunteering with them.

Next week, camps start on Wednesday so that families can spend some quality time together on Monday and Tuesday to celebrate the 4th of July. We have two camps next week, Into the Wild: Boys and Into the Wild: Girls. Both camps have a campout option where they stay in forts that they built with their teams in the woods. It's so much fun! Both camps still have space available so tell your friends and sign up to have a blast with us! Follow the link below for registration details:

Week Two: Fishing, Air Rifles, and Worst Cases

Steve Scott

We had a successful second week at OTO. This week, we had two camps in the morning; Fish On! and Basic Marksmanship and one camp in the afternoon; Worse Case Scenario. It was a week full of fun! 

In Fish On! this week, the fishermen and fisherwomen learned how to cast and bait their fishing poles, how to tie a few fishing knots, and most importantly, got to catch fish! We had a variety of activities this week to challenge their fishing skills, the prizes were fish gummy snacks and sour gummy worms. This summer we brought back cleaning and cooking fish on the last day and all of the campers got to eat the fish we fried up. They got to try bass (caught from camp that day from our pond) and tilapia. This camp was led by Stephen and Alex with Kenzie and Alaina volunteering with them.

In Basic Marksmanship this week, shooters learned all of the safety rules and basic marksmanship skills they need to progress onto the next level: guns that go boom! Campers got to shoot in our new indoor range on the first day due to the weather, and spent the rest of the week shooting at our outdoor range. They played lots of games this week that helped with their aiming and sharp shooter abilities. On the last day, campers got to shoot at the Kaboom! The leaders placed a two liter bottle on the top of an air compressor and when the two liter is shot it goes... KABOOM! Safe to say that this camp was a blast this week! Camp was led by Clayton and Kasey with Isaac and Derek volunteering with them.

In Worse Case Scenario this week campers got lost in the woods, got transported to the Wild West where bandits were on the loose, lost their arms, sight and the ability to talk and finally, got to do an escape room! This week was full of scenarios that challenged camper's abilities and imagination. They learned new skills while having lots of fun! We love this camp because scenarios change from camp to camp. This camp was led by Delaney, Joey and Katrina with Mikayla and Emily volunteering.

Week One: Archery and Bigfoot

Steve Scott

Week one of summer camps is in the books! This week, we had Introduction to Archery and Search for Bigfoot. Both camps were full of energy and excitement and some really awesome campers! 

In Introduction to Archery, we added a new component this summer, THEME DAYS! They included Super Hero Day, Safari Day, and Crazy Clothes Day. Each theme day correlated with a special archery game, like a sniper (long-distance) challenge, a 3D Shoot, and our signature mystery shoot with crazy colored flash cards. Along with all of these new activities, we included all of the basic archery rules and skills that are the backbone of archery. In this camp we had 20 students who were full of energy and loved having fun, and loved shooting archery! Campers won lots of candy and money, plus an On Target hat and shirt! This week in camp we talked about how to get to Heaven, how to ask God into our hearts and what to do once we have accepted him into our hearts. This camp was led by Katrina, Stephen and Kendall with Jacob, Lauren and Taryn volunteering.

In Search for Bigfoot, campers learned all of the skills they needed to be stealthy, how to track and hunt Bigfoot and then got to put their skills to the test on the last day with a Bigfoot hunt. One of our staff members took some shots for the team, suited up as Bigfoot, and let the Bigfoot hunters shoot paintballs at him! They also got the chance to learn about archery (and shoot for Bigfoot Nuggets!) and so many different varies of hide and seek, sardines, prison break and capture the flag. They also learned a new game called Bigfoot tag. In this game, each player puts  a panty hose on their head and the foot of the panty hose is full of flour, then they spin around and sway their heads to tag the other players! This is our favorite game. Despite the rain and storms this week, our 8 Bigfoot hunters learned and played with smiles on their faces! The lesson of the week was about whether or not Bigfoot is real, whether or not God is real, evidence for both, and if so, so what? We believe that God is real and that that we should share the good news with our friends. This camp was lead by Delaney, Stephen and Alex with Mikayla and Madison volunteering.

The Week before Week One

Steve Scott

"Howdy ho On Target folk!" - Clayton Frame

As we prepare ourselves for next week, we can't help but think that summer camps are only FOUR DAYS AWAY! This will be an exciting week as this is the kick-start for many weeks of fun times and making new friends. Next week will feature two camps; Introduction to Archery in the morning and Search for Bigfoot in the afternoon.

In the Introduction to Archery camp, the kids will learn a safe and fun way to shoot archery while also facing a few more difficult shots later in the week. At the end of the week, the kids will be skilled in the sport of shooting archery, which will make them eligible to join a more challenging archery camp (Intermediate Archery), where they will shoot at further distances and be able to make their own bow, decorated with colorful choices of duct-tape of course. The bows that the kids make will be able to be taken home at the end of the week. There are still spots available if interested!

Campers get the win tons of prizes in Introduction to Archery, including money and candy!!

In the Search for Bigfoot camp the kids will have an opportunity to "Hunt" for Bigfoot after a few days of training for the hunt, of course. Training will consist of different versions of hide and seek, learning about how to camouflage yourself in the wild, and how to track Bigfoot. After our team of campers is trained and ready to face Bigfoot himself, they will put their skills to the test. Each camper will get the chance to retrieve Bigfoot from the wild and shoot some paintballs at him if we are lucky enough to find him!! 

Successful Bigfoot hunt!

In the nine weeks of summer camps that we are providing, we know that there will be many opportunities to make connections with kids, while also making a lot of new friends. Each summer we strive to instill the core beliefs that On Target stands on: Faith, Ethics, and Values. As we look to next week, we are excited for the new friendships, and the opportunities to share the good news of Jesus Christ with others! As Proverbs 3:5-6 says "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths." 

If you would like to register for these camps or any others, please follow this link to our registration page or you can access if from our home page:

We wish you all a blessed rest of your week, and hope to see you next week for the first week of summer camps!

So what are the kids going to do this summer?

Steve Scott

This is the question many parents are asking themselves as their children are getting ready to finish school for the year.   It's easy for kids to fall into the routine of TV, video games, and social media while summer slips away, but I hope you will consider encouraging your children to do what your parents probably told you to do - "Go Outside."  

Consider sending them to an On Target Outfitters day-camp where they can do outdoor activities with friends such as fishing, archery, riflery, camping, hiking and more.  Every week offers different outdoor adventures and there are activities for all ages and skill levels.  Check out the whole list of day-camps on our website and be sure to share them with your friends.  All of our camps are well supervised and safe (important for parents) and they are extremely fun (important for the kids).  We hope to see you and your children this summer!
