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 and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

This spring we modified the format of Camp Heritage to include two components. Participants may enroll in either or both components. First, we are holding a hunter education course at the Division of Wildlife District 4 office located in Athens, OH on the evenings of May 2nd and 3rd from 6pm -9pm. This is open to anyone of any age. Registration opens March 11th and is limited to 50.

To register for the first component, the hunter education course please use this link https://oh-web.s3licensing.com/Event/Search?ct=HUNTER%20EDUCATION&ctid=1&caid=1. After the webpage displays, type in "45701" for zip code or "Athens" for city and click "Go" to register.

The second component is an outdoor shooting sports event open to youth 17 years of age and younger. This outdoor event offers hands-on experience with shotguns, rifles, muzzleloaders and archery equipment with emphasis on safety. Lunch will be provided for the participants. The date for this portion will be held on May 4th.

We have a qualified and experienced staff that will provide all the instruction. The 32-acre site provides adequate space and facilities. All structures and ranges are first designed for safety, form and function. The event is grant funded and staffed by members of Athens Fish & Game Club, certified instructors, and local sportsmen and sportswomen. Registration for the second component, the outdoor shooting sports event will also be limited to 50. To register for the outdoor shooting sports event please click on the following link.
