Sign Up for Camps

 Our programs

COVID-19 has impacted our ability to offer some camps this summer. We have currently cancelled camps in June and most in July. The RAFD board and host coordinators will be meeting in late May to discuss the two remaining camps: Wisconsin and Iowa youth camps.

We want to thank you for your patience, understanding, and support throughout these challenging times. We recognize that you as parents and participants are waiting answers.  We know the excitement, joy and anticipation that camp brings but the safety of our participants and volunteers will always be the utmost of importance. 

Youth Camps

Our Raised at Full Draw (RAFD) Bowhunting camps are designed to teach youth 12-17 years old the skills of hunting, while having the opportunity to try things hands-on in a positive learning environment.  .  The goal of our camps is to pass knowledge and techniques to those who have never shot a bow to those who have been hunting before.  Participants can earn their Bowhunter Education Certification. Most of our camps are four days, three nights, tent camping.  However we have started to include day camps within populated locations.

Cancelled due to COVID-19: Michigan, Montanta, North Dakota youth camps

TBD Cancelation: Iowa and Wisconsin youth camps

Women's Camp - RISE

R.I.S.E is a division within Raised At Full Draw, our youth camp.  R.IS.E. is a retreat for women designed to teach the skills of bowhunting, personal growth and confidence building skills that will carry into everyday life.

2020 RISE has been cancelled due to COVID-19. 

Family and Young Adult Camps

This three-day program is designed to give you some experiences that you may never have had before, or believed that you could do. Raised At Full Draw is designed for participants who have never shot a bow before or never been hunting. You will build confidence by learning how to properly shoot a bow and arrow, hike to a destination at night, learn how to set up a ground blind so you can go out hunting with your family or by yourself.

3D Tournaments

We offer a handful of 3D tournaments to help promote our camps.  Some of our tournaments are indoor such as the Iowa Deer Classic and some may be outdoor such as DeerFest.  Our tournaments feature 20 static 3D targets strategically placed in varying distances within the indoor 40 yard range.
