Types of Events 

SYC hosts four major events per year - a spring turkey hunt, a fall deer hunt, and two fundraising events. The hunting events are 3-day weekends filled with hunting, fellowship, and devotions. The two fundraisers have fun activities for the whole family.

 

Below are more details concerning what you can expect from these types of events...

Hunts

All of our turkey and deer hunts are fully guided and offer the youth themselves the opportunity to hunt. Each hunter is assigned two guides. All blinds are accesible and all firearms are tailored to the special needs of the youth, including a seperate screen for scope use and a double trigger system for the guide and the hunter.

Each hunt takes place on a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. They will first meet on Friday to sight-in their gun and ensure the hunter is familiar with the equipent. This is followed by a full dinner banquet that night where hunter's are recognized, and new hunters are given their bible and camo. The actual hunt starts early Saturday morning. We meet for lunch and return again for the evening hunt. Sunday morning is our last hunt followed by a special lunchtime filled with sharing and encouragement. Meal times will include a guest speaker with an inspiring message for all.

A typical weekend hunt agenda will look something like this. Times may vary slightly for each hunt.
