Narrow Lake Youth Camp
Sherwood Park Fish and Game Association (SPFGA) has over the years sponsored two youths between the ages of 12 to 16 for a full week of outdoor education at the Narrow Lake Conservation Centre located near the town of Athabasca.
The Club encourages its members to put forward names of family members who would like to experience a full week of outdoor education. Youth sponsored must be members of SPFGA. Names of the winners will be drawn at the May General Meeting at the Old Log Cabin.
The Youth Camps are held on the first and third week of July. Contact the President at email@example.com for further details.
Becoming an Outdoor Woman
This program is designed for women 18 years of age and older to learn outdoor skills usually associated with hunting and fishing, but useful for many outdoor pursuits.
The BOW Camps are held the second and fourth week of July.

Black Powder Shoot
The Edmonton House Brigade and Sherwood Park Fish & Game Association co-host a shoot in late May of each year and in September. The shoot has a theme of the era of the Western Fur Trade and dress in period costume is encouraged but not mandatory. Check the Events Calendar for dates and time.

Weekly Trap Series
Our weekly trap series runs from the beginning of May to the end of August, run using the electronic thrower on:
- Wednesday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
- Sunday afternoons beginning at 12 noon
Cost: Cost to participate is $5 per round (25 clays) for adults and $3 for youth under 18 (cash only please). You supply your own shells – one box of 25 shells per round.
Shot size: #7.5 or 8
Equipment: Your shotgun will be fine to shoot with – nothing special is required. Twelve gauge is standard for trap, but smaller gauges are fine though they do increase the challenge.
Match details: Each round, five members shoot at a time, with a round typically taking 10-20 minutes. For information on how trap games are played, refer to the Amateur Trapshooting Association website.
Events are drop-in, with no registration or RSVP necessary. Simply sign the waiver when you arrive & you’re ready to go. Events are run solely for fun and the only person you’re trying to beat is you & your best score. There’s always someone to explain the rules and the course of fire to newcomers, and to give tips and even a little informal coaching from time to time.
For further details, please contact the Shotgun Chair by email at: email@example.com.
