Kids under 16 can become members of our club for FREE, and take part in all of our activities including those mentioned below. Students (16 – 23 AND still in school) have annual dues of only $20.00.
Since FREE club membership provides an opportunity for college scholarship money, a chance at a Lifetime Fishing license, a week at the Bryant Pond 4H Learning Center, and a host of other benefits, why aren’t all of the kids you know members?
Our annual ice fishing derby is the last full weekend of February. Proceeds go to send area kids to 4-H Camp and Learning Center in Bryant Pond. This year we will have FAMILY DAY on Sunday when we will be teaching kids how to ice fish, and snowshoe. The 4-H Camp will help us by supplying experts to teach kids some winter survival tips that could save their lives! We’ll have the equipment and folks to help them learn a new pursuit. Our headquarters is our clubhouse, stop in for food, raffle tickets, to register a fish, or to say hello.
“The Incredible Hulls” is a co-ed youth trap team sponsored by our club. We waive the trap fees, and provide a wonderful venue for this terrific sport. We are blessed with super, highly trained instructors, and an enthusiastic group of young people that are gaining wide acclaim.
As we do every year, we will be sending some of our Youth Members to the University of Maine Bryant Pond 4H Learning Center. We pay for the entire week (Cost is $635.00 we pay all but $25.00), so these kids get an outdoor educational experience of a lifetime!

Our YOUTH FIELD DAY each spring features a program teaching things like map reading, tree identification, first aid, survival, archery, gun handling and .22 use, taught by our folks and other volunteer experts.
We award a $500.00 College Scholarship to an area high school graduate who has some affiliation with our club at the annual Oxford Hills Graduation ceremony.
Each year, we draw one name from our YOUTH MEMBERS and grant that winner a lifetime Maine fishing license! This takes place each year at our July BBQ “non-meeting”.

In November, our club members donate both money and Christmas gifts which we give to area families and their children who wouldn’t be having a happy Christmas without them. The great generosity of our membership is appreciated by many local folks and we are thankful to be able to help them. On 11/16/20 a check for $810.00 was sent to Right Start for this program.
