Las Vegas, NC —-( Ohio 4-H Shooting Sports presented a recognition award to the Smith & Wesson Company, recognizing it’s contributions to the 2009 Ohio 4-H Summer Shooting Education Camp.

In July of 2009, 172 boys and girls from several states, participated in the 12th annual Ohio 4-H Summer Shooting Education Camp, held at the Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp in Jackson, Ohio.

Recognized nationally as one of the largest camps of its kind, the 6-day learning experience focuses on the safe, responsible and ethical use of firearms and archery equipment.

Smith & Wesson supported the camp by sending champion shooter B.J. Norris as a guest instructor working in the action pistol program. This was B.J.’s 2nd year working at the camp. He and Jerry Miculek instructed at the camp together in 2008. This program was started in 2008 with the assistance of Smith & Wesson. Smith donated several model 1911 and M&P pistols as well as model 686 revolvers.

“We couldn’t have done this without Smith & Wesson’s support and assistance. Their leadership and generous donations has taken our camp to a new level,” said Tom Johnston,Ohio’s Pistol Coordinator. “We hope to partner with them for many years to come. BJ and Jerry are truly thought of as family at our camp in southwest Ohio. The training they have provided to the children of our camp has created memories that will last a lifetime”.

The camp is held annually in July and is open to boys and girls ages 12-19. Campers are not required to be residents of Ohio and are not required to be members of 4-H. Shooting instruction is led by trained, experienced 4-H Shooting Sports Instructors. Campers specialize in the discipline of their choice such as Archery, Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, or Living History, with all having multiple levels.

The main focus of the camp is shooting safety education and youth development, but campers obtain technical instruction from some of the best firearms instructors Ohio has to offer.
