Ministry aimed at youth has outdoors emphasis
Posted: Thursday, February 3, 2011 11:32 am
Call ’em in Outdoors, a local ministry that mentors youth through outdoor activities, held its first youth duck hunt recently.
One of the ministry’s co-founders, Scott Smyth, felt it was a great success. “The kids seem to have had a great time. They worked really hard in school to meet the requirements to go on the trip and deserved a great time. Everyone was all smiles, ” he said.
Smyth, along with the other co-founders, Micah Harbison and Hunter Rice, worked hard to find warm clothes for the new hunters and prepared delicious treats in the blind for the crew, including their first-ever duck meal.
Smyth said special thanks was due to Brad Moon for the invitation to use his blind for the afternoon hunt. He added, “This is just one of the many activities these guys will earn through the mentoring program over this year. What a way to start!”
Call ’em in Outdoors is a non-profit ministry whose goals are to reach young people with a positive influence and introduce them to the outdoors. The organization will host a low- cost, county-wide event in the fall to introduce more youth to hunting, all while helping to equip them for their lives ahead.
