Inner-City Youth Hunting Program Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary
Student Will Receive Mounts at the Eastern Sports Show on Sat. Feb. 13th, 2010.
Allentown, PA –-(AmmoLand.com)- On Saturday February 13th students from the award winning program Camp Compass will be receiving a unique reward.
The students will be honored with mounted game heads from hunting trips from this past year. The mounts are a donated service by the Pennsylvania Taxidermy Association.
“This is an annual event and it will be neat to have the sponsors get to see the kids receive their mounts since usually the students receive them at the P.T.A. Convention each year.” stated John Annoni, Founder of the program. “Each student receiving a mount has been involved with Camp Compass for at least 2 1/2 years and this event will be a culmination of lots of classroom and field time.”
The event will be held prior to the show doors opening on Saturday, February 13th in the Northwest hall (booth 3445) adjacent to the Pennsylvania Taxidermy Association’s booth. It will start promptly at 9 a.m. and the event will end around 9:45 a.m. This will give participants in the show time to return to their booths for the start of the show. The event is only open to exhibitors and media involved with the show.
Camp Compass Academy is an award winning program that rewards inner-city children with hunting and fishing trips based on academic and social performance. It was recently featured on the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. It is nationally known as a program that has been able to implement a college style learning with an outdoor focus in places where traditional outdoor outlets have not been able to reach youth.
