Our Youth Trapping Camp is one of our most popular events each year! This hands-on camp, led by IDNR and Illinois Trapping Camp imstructors will teach youth basic fundamental skills in the sport of trapping. Students will help set and check a trap line, learn about trapping equipment and game identification, observe proper pelt preparation and discuss trapper ethics.

This camp satisfies the IDNR Trapper Safety Education requirement to obtain an Illinois Trapper License. In addition to their Trapper Safety card, youth will have a chance to go home with trapping equipment.
