Camp Heritage, Inc.
Camp Heritage, Inc. is located at 600 Robinette Ridge Rd., New Marshfield, Ohio 45766. The purpose of this organization is to promote the stewardship of our land, wildlife and outdoor heritage by providing education and guidance for the future generations. Camp Heritage was founded by George Foreman. Our Hunter Education Camp was started in 1999, using facilities at Lake Snowden.
Since that time we have incorporated and become Camp Heritage, Inc. (a 501(c)(3) organization) now located at its permanent site with a meeting facility and bathroom facilities. We have joined forces with Athens Fish & Game Club in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. We put on a camp every year on the second weekend of July for youth ages 9 to 15 who have not previously successfully completed a hunter education course. Registration is limited to 50. The campers arrive on Friday evening and leave on Sunday afternoon.
During that time they are given the Hunter Education course with hands-on experience with shotguns, rifles, muzzleloaders and archery equipment. We have a qualified and experienced staff that provides safety and professionalism. The 32-acre camp site provides adequate space and facilities. All structures and ranges are first designed for safety, then form and function. This 'no cost to campers' weekend is grant funded and staffed by members of Athens Fish & Game Club, certified instructors, and local sportsmen and sportswomen.
