Trinity Oaks believes that with the support of education, proper initiation, and mentorship of our youth, we must teach the cultural and aesthetic pleasures of our hunting and fishing culture.
Youth Hunting & Fishing Events
Trinity Oaks volunteers are excited to share the sporting culture with kids. What others might consider hardships—on a Saturday morning, crawling out of bed while it is still dark out, wading through boot-sucking mud to set decoys, or sitting for hours on end waiting for the perfect shot—these experiences define the active outdoor culture that we want to pass onto the next generation. Also, the social aspects of hunting are so important! From plucking birds after the hunt, descaling a fish, happily retelling the day’s stories around the fire, posing with a youngster’s first duck, to cooking up a great meal from the day’s harvest, are memories that will last a lifetime.
Outdoor Adventure Education (Youth Ages 10-16 Years Old)
In a further effort to introduce hunting and fishing to our youth, we provide an Outdoor Adventure Education for youth ages 10-16 years old. The curriculum covers themes like developing an appreciation for the outdoors, fostering a desire to conserve wildlife and habitat, and improving self-worth and overall well-being. Through the Trinity Oaks’ Outdoor Adventure Education program, kids are exposed to unfamiliar and challenging tasks, such as archery, angling, CPR/first aid, survival skills, outdoor cooking, and orienteering. Through specialized skill development, self-confidence is built and that this is one of the best defenses against unhealthy peer-pressure. The outdoors can challenge kids to acquire new abilities even when they are unaware that the process is occurring. Planning, group participation, physical exertion, humility, and thinking on your feet all help develop skills that our next generation can use every day.

David’s Day For Unique Kids
The David’s Day for Unique kids Program was started in June 2018. Our program is one in which we foster guidance and support towards creating a sense of appreciation and joy for being outdors. This is a time to recognize how participating in a variety of outdoor activities can grow a child with special needs in the area of social interaction, communication, self regulation, cognitive development, and physical development. The Trinity Oaks Volunteers introduce the children to new outdoor experience to build their tolerance, while also giving them familiar experiences that will build comfort and security in the outdoors. The goal for the David’s Day for Unique Kids Program is for special needs children to gain a love for being in the outdoors through activities that will expand their knowledge and experience, while instilling in them a sense of security and joy.
