Raised at Full Draw (RAFD) has been hosting camps in Shawano County, Wisconsin every summer since 2020.
This farmland landscape of flat plains, rolling hardwood hills, river bottom lowlands, thick cedar swamps is home to some giant whitetails and an abundance of wild turkeys. This area is a deer and turkey hunters paradise. Shawano County has abundant farmland with a large quantity of valuable timber and several waterways including the Wolf River and the 6,215 acre Shawano Lake.Shawano County is a recreational paradise with many miles of ATV and hiking trails. Snowmobilers and cross country skiers also enjoy these trails during the winter months.
Shawano County is a great setting for the next RAFD camp. Campers will not only leave camp with a greater love for the outdoors, they will have a deeper understanding for the need to preserve and promote our hunting heritage. The Shawano camp is located just North East of the City of Shawano in a 300+ acre recreational paradise surrounded by lush oaks and conifer trees.
Like our other camps such as Iowa or Montana, the 3D archery course consists of a minimum of 20 targets with a diverse species of North American game, challenging all levels of shooters. From rabbits and raccoons to bears and bulls, this 3D range has it all!
The targets are strategically placed throughout the terrain to teach the best skill sets in hunting. Shooters will be faced with a multitude of hunting situations and almost every circumstance. The certified RAFD instructors utilize our hands-on teaching approach that allows the shooters to make the best ethical decision for a quick clean shot. This camp doesn’t only teach proper shot placement and retrieval of game, it exposes the youth to various hunting methods that will allow them to become better hunters.
We teach treestand hunting, ground blinds and spot and stalk hunting methods. Our educational curriculum has been proven to give our students the best up-to-date information for them to succeed in outdoor sports.
Participants will be asked to turn in their cellphones and disconnect from their electronics. We continue to teach ethics and values of our heritage, raise and lower the flag each day and pray when we eat.
Participants do not need their own bows and arrows! If they do not have equipment we provide it to them, just let us know on the registration form. Participants do need to bring their own sleeping gear (tents, sleeping bags etc). However, if you need assistance with tents please let us know.
If you’re looking for the most hands-on and informative hunting camp you have ever imagined, you have come to the right place. Turning today’s youth into tomorrow’s future. Welcome to Raised at Full Draw.
