The NRA Whittington Center is unlike any place on this planet and is perfect for the Youth Adventure Camp experience. More than 30,000 acres and 17 ranges are devoted to shooting for multiple shooting disciplines. Even better, the beautiful New Mexico facility offers exceptional guided and unguided hunts, expert firearms training, lodging, cabins and camping, youth programs, a museum, a Pro Shop, and much more.

This year 112 youth attendees will shoot more than 140,000 total rounds over the full Adventure Camp experience. The kids participate in classes that teach the fundamentals of pistol, rifle, muzzleloading, shotgun, archery, as well as hunting ethics and other outdoor programs.

Federal Premium has generously donated 40 cases of 12-gauge and 30 cases of 20-gauge shotshells. Plus, 10 cases of .308 Win., 7 cases of .22LR, and also a variety of different muzzleloader caps.

In addition, educational programs at the NRA Whittington Center include: hunter's safety, map reading, animal tracking and understanding of wildlife management techniques—including how hunting is used as a wildlife management tool.

"Federal Premium is proud to support these educational experiences and programs for youth. Our relationship with the NRA Whittington Center is rooted in a common commitment to youth development via the shooting sports," said Federal Premium conservation director Ryan Bronson. "The Whittington Center is helping develop responsible citizens that promote the rights and responsibilities of firearm ownership while developing their shooting skills."
