CHATFIELD, Minn. -- The Pope & Young Club, a non-profit North American conservation and bowhunting organization announces support for the Kicking Bear Camp For Kids program.

The Pope & Young Club has donated over a half million dollars to conservation projects over the last 5 years. Continuing in that tradition, the Pope & Young Club is proud to announce its ongoing support for Kicking Bear Camp For Kids.

“Kicking Bear is pleased to share in the mission and continuing dedication of the Pope & Young Club to protecting the future of bowhunting, promote conservation and protect wildlife and its habitat. As a recipient of Pope & Young Club grants in the past, Kicking Bear continues to use 100% of its grant funding for engaging youth in the sport of archery and bowhunting.” says Kicking Bear founder, Ray Howell.

Numerous Kicking Bear camps and clinics are conducted by volunteer staff annually throughout the United States. Continuing its growth, Kicking Bear adds more events in more states every year. The growing interest is a result of the outstanding reputation it has established with the sportsman and conservation clubs throughout the country. At a time when today’s youth are being steered away from outdoor activities, Kicking Bear strives to engage and captivate youth by providing a unique and fun outdoor archery and mentoring experience.

“The Pope & Young Club is proud to support such a great organization,” says Pope & Young’s Executive Secretary, Kevin Hisey. “Inspiring today’s youth to shoot a bow and recognize the wonder of the outdoor world, protects the future of bowhunting and that is a mission that the Pope & Young Club is committed to.”

Established in 1961, the Pope and Young Club is a non-profit North American conservation and bowhunting organization dedicated to the promotion and protection of our bowhunting heritage, hunting ethics and wildlife conservation. The Club also maintains the universally recognized repository for the records and statistics on North American big game animals harvested with a bow and arrow.
