Still Room in Summer Youth Programs at Owl Brook Hunter Ed Center, Holderness
HOLDERNESS, N.H. – Keep the kids busy and help build their outdoor skills by signing them up for free youth day programs taking place this summer at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness. These programs give youth (boys and girls) age 10-15 the chance to learn about the shooting sports, bowhunting and other outdoor skills. Sessions will be offered in July and August at Owl Brook, which is operated by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.
