CONROE, Texas -(Ammoland.com)- Aguila Ammunition/Texas Armament & Technology (TxAT) have renewed their partnership with the NRA Whittington Center in support of their youth Adventure Camp.
Aguila Ammunition/TxAT will donate 50,000 rounds of Aguila .22 Super Extra rimfire to the camp this year as well as 6,000 rounds of 12 gauge shotshell.
“Our two-week camps allow boys and girls age 13-17 the opportunity to learn everything from shooting/hunting fundamentals to firearm safety, marksmanship and basic survival skills,” said NRA Whittington Center Adventure Camp Coordinator, Eric Whaley. “During this time, campers will each fire over 1,200 rounds of ammo. We are so grateful to Aguila Ammunition for donating this ammunition and ensuring that future generations enjoy the shooting sports. Without generous donations from within our industry, the Adventure Camp wouldn’t be possible.”
“The NRA Whittington Center Youth Adventure Camp is one of America’s best outdoor youth camps in the country and we are proud to continue our partnership with them,” states Kristi Drawe, Director of Marketing for Aguila Ammunition/TxAT. “Their staff and camp counselors do an amazing job of igniting a passion for the shooting sports within these youth shooters. Aguila Ammunition is proud to be a part of that passion.”
The Whittington Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, relying heavily on tax-deductible donations.
While closely associated with the NRA the Whittington Center is not funded or managed by the NRA, thus making industry support of this unique and challenging youth camp all the more the important.
The donations bring competitions, classes and events to the Whittington Center, which helps keep the shooting sports alive for generations.
