Safety is always the primary focus of the program, along with positive youth development skills. The emphasis of all 4-H programs is the development of youth as individuals and as responsible and productive citizens. The activities of the 4-H Shooting Sports program and the support of caring adult leaders provide young people with opportunities to develop life skills, self-worth and conservation ethics. Some of the specific objectives of the program include: teaching self-discipline, problem solving, sportsmanship, and appreciation and understanding of natural resources. The shooting sports program is also an opportunity to strengthen families through participation in lifelong recreational activities. We do recommend that a parent or guardian accompany the youth participants whenever possible. Come join this program in which youth can experience learning that is hands-on, fun and safe. The fee for the program is $5 for current Seneca County 4-H members (for lunch), and $20 for non-4-H members (which includes lunch and a 1 year membership in 4-H). Pre-registration is required.
