Youth - Hunter Education Camp
Dan Gauthier Memorial Sponsorship
The GOFFSTOWN FISH AND GAME ASSOCIATION, in memory of Dan Gauthier, would like to send a youth to the Barry Conservation Camp for a one week Hunter Education session this summer.
Applicants must be between the ages of 12 -16 at the time of the camp session and live in the Goffstown, Weare, and New Boston regional area. Only applicants that have not already received hunter education certificates from NH can apply. Transportation to and from the camp is the responsibility of the parent or guardian. Sponsorship will be awarded based on the content of the application.
Barry Conservation camp is conducted jointly by the UNH Cooperative Extension, NH Fish and Game Department and the NH 4-H Camps. Barry Conservation Camp is located in the White Mountain National Forest at the Berlin Fish Hatchery. Nearby York Pond offers swimming and canoeing for the camp. Five cabins house up to seven campers with a counselor in each.
Hunter Education July 23-28, 2017 Ages 12-16
Join NH Fish and Game Department Hunter Education staff, volunteer instructors and camp counselors to learn and practice safe, responsible and ethical hunting. Campers will learn wildlife identification, conservation and management; take part in a live fire exercise with rifles and shotguns; explore the outdoors through a map, compass and overnight survival challenge; help prepare wild game for table; and participate in a friendly skills challenge at the conclusion of camp.
In 2009, we were saddened by the loss of our dear friend and fellow club member, Dan Gauthier. Dan was an active member of the Goffstown Fish & Game Association for decades, and had served as Secretary for over 25 years. Dan was also active as a Chief Instructor for Hunter Education. In his memory, the Association has established the Dan Gauthier Memorial Sponsorship to send one young person per year to the Barry Conservation Camp in Berlin, NH.
