ANOKA, Minnesota – Federal Premium Ammunition is a dedicated 2017 sponsor of the NRA Whittington Center Youth Adventure Camp experience. The NRA Whittington Center is unlike any place on earth.

In 2017, 112 youth attendees will shoot more than 140,000 total rounds over their Adventure Camp experience. They participate in fundamentals of pistol, rifle, muzzleloading, shotgun, archery as well as hunting ethics and other outdoor programs.

Federal Premium has donated 40 cases of 12-gauge and 30 cases of 20-gauge shotshells. Plus, 10 cases of .308 Win., 7 cases of .22 LR and a variety of muzzleloader caps for these activities.

Additional educational programs at the NRA Whittington Center include hunter’s safety, map reading, animal tracking and understanding of wildlife management techniques including how hunting is used as a wildlife management tool.

“Federal Premium is proud to support these educational experiences and programs for youth.
