YFGA – Outdoor Education Youth Camp

On Monday July 8, 2013 the Yukon Fish and Game Association will have exclusive use of the entire range for their Outdoor Education Youth Camp where a variety of shooting activities will be conducted.

This means that general access to the range by members or user groups is not permitted between 08:00 am and 3:00 pm while these young individuals are on site. This is to ensure a safe environment for them to learn.

Members may access the range after 3:00 pm.

There is considerable traffic at the range over the next 2-3 weeks with several of the enforcement agencies trying to get all of their training and qualification practices accomplished. These User Groups reserve the range venues during their regular working hours. Members may access the range in the early morning or later in the afternoon and evening on those busy days. Your understanding is appreciated.

As in past years, the entire range is closed while the Junior Canadian Rangers are on site during the last week of June and anytime organized youth groups are present. Members are welcome to use the range after 5 PM on those days.

Once the range dries up a little more, a clean up day will be announced. All you need for that is some work gloves and some old clothes and an hour or so of your time.
