Youth Hunting & Conservation Course

YHCCThe Delta Waterfowl Foundation and Ontario Federation of Anglers & Hunters are pleased to announce the offering of two Youth Hunting & Conservation Courses in summer 2017. The 2017 Youth Hunting & Conservation Course is a 6 day event with fun and action filled learning activities. Certified instructors will teach and coach students by sharing their knowledge and experience so that students can successfully obtain their Firearms Safety and Hunter Education certification and much, much more.

This course is for boys and girls, ages 12-16. $600 will include food, accommodations, Canadian Firearm & Ontario Hunting certification, a number of membership subscriptions from our supporting partners, a variety of hunting clothing & gear.

*Must be an Ontario resident.

Parent Course Registration
Some youth taking the course do not come from a background/family of hunters. Consequently, we offer a limited number of spaces for parents/guardians who would like to take the courses with their child. Cost to parents/guardians is $600. Parents/guardians interested in taking the course, or attending are asked to fill out a their own separate application package. There is no requirement for adults to submit a personal reference. To complete the registration process, input into these fields your own name, phone number and email address.
