Area youth who enjoy the outdoors are invited to the 8th Annual NRA Youth Sports Fest Camp, which will be held from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on June 21 at Lloyd Wildlife Management Area in Crittenden.

The camp features a full day of outdoor activities including fishing, archery, rifle, muzzleloader, trap shooting and a hunter safety trail challenge.

Last year, a total of 105 children took part in the event.

Deborah Price, who is helping with the production of the program, said a goal is to introduce children to the outdoors.

Price and the NRA Youth Sports Fest Camp will teach campers about the outdoors, trapping animals, hunting animals and hunting safety.

"We hope the kids get involved in the outdoors and shooting sports. We want to give them the chance to try out all the shooting aspects and experience the outdoors," Price said.

The cost is $5 and registration is required by June 13.
