Photos from Deaf Camp 2017

#1 Post by dhaverstick » Mon Aug 14, 2017 7:58 am

The Outdoor Skills Camp for the Hearing Impaired was held this past weekend at the H. Roe Bartle Boy Scout Reservation in Osceola, MO and the United Bowhunters of Missouri ran the archery range for the campers as always. Due to some construction, the range was moved to a temporary setting but everything went smoothly and everyone had a lot of fun. How can you not enjoy popping balloons and killing foam animals? It's quite gratifying when the kids and parents start asking about how they can get their own bows and arrows so they can shoot at home. Thanks to all the UBM members who volunteered their time and talent to this worthy cause!

Now that is cool! That pic of that young feller holding up his deflated balloon cracks me up. Looks like a great time for everyone!

I'm digging that serious young man with the green glass bow in pic #6. Great form, and check out the look on his face...priceless!

That camp has been going for 16 years and the UBM has been there for every one of them running the archery range and 3D course. It's a great feeling seeing the same kids year after year especially when they come up to you to say that archery is their favorite thing to do at camp. For many of these families, this is the only vacation they are able to take so it's doubly rewarding to be a part of it.
