How it Started

Kids Outdoor Sports Camp (KOSC) was started 18 years ago by Judy Oswald (back row, center) in an effort to help her children get a hunter safety certificate. Finding none easily available, she started KOSC. She has taught literally hunter safety and wildlife conservation to thousands of youth.

What Participants Learn

KOSC teaches kids about hunter education, hunter safety, rifle shooting, fishing, shotgun sports, archery as well as providing an enjoyable experience for all involved. KOSC provides an intensive week for the youth which includes classroom instruction and field experience. Successful completion of the written test provides participants with a hunter safety certificate qualifying them for their own hunting license. For more information about KOSC and how to sign up for future camps, please visit
