Outdoor Youth Day

September 8, 2018 

Sportsmen for Youth will hold Youth Day on September 8, 2018, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Muskegon County Fairgrounds, 6621 Heights Ravenna Road, in Muskegon. 

This is an absolutely FREE family friendly day. The first 2,500 youth 17 years and younger will receive a t-shirt, free lunch, prize drawings, and goodie bag.

Youth Day is designed to introduce and educate youth to all things outdoors—from hunting and fishing to conservation and good stewardship of our natural resources. It is also dedicated to promoting the safe pursuit of outdoor activities.

Youth Day includes fantastic guest speakers at the Hawg Trough, which is a semi-trailer size tank that will be filled with local fish species and act as a stage for guest speakers.  Mark Martin, Logan Locke, Dan Zatarga, Mitch Johnson, Chris Noffsinger, Kyle Buck, Todd Sokolow and Stacey Chuppallo will entertain the crowd. A rock climbing wall and birds of prey exhibit will be on hand. 

Return favorites to Youth Day are: the “Trout Pond” where live trout are caught and cleaned for youth; shooting of firearms and archery; and many others. Over 60 exhibitors will be on hand to educate the youth.

A partnership between Sportsmen for Youth and the Muskegon County Area Fire Chiefs was formed several years ago. At Youth Day, attendees will experience various fire safety exhibits, demonstrations and tours of fire trucks of all types. Law Enforcement will also be on hand with displays.

Sportsmen for Youth is a non-profit organization and is able to continue Youth Day free thanks to the generosity and donations from local businesses and private donations. It costs approximately $30,000 to make Youth Day happen free of charge. Again this year there will be a raffle for five firearms. All proceeds to be used for Youth Day!
