Project 4: Stockade 80

Did you know…

Todd Dunham has led this program area since 1992?

This project provides…

enhanced safety features, including beginner and advanced shooting areas, as well as relocated pistol and rifle range with fully bermed 50 and 200-yard target shooting ranges.

Help us wrap up this project!

Fort is raising funds to allow for the Stockade 80 project to be ready for the summer 2024 Family Camps.  These funds will cover a Phase 2 feature (road and parking), plus final costs to accommodate the labor needed to complete on time.

Will you consider helping Fort fast track this project?”

 

Project Details

Since the founding of Fort, archery and .22 shooting in a secluded location at Main Camp have welcomed campers of all ages and skill levels. In the 1970s, camp introduced clay target shooting on an 80-acre tract of land a mile down the road, now known as Stockade 80.  Over the years, the fun expanded as thousands have learned how to shoot or sharpen their skills in marksmanship while bonding together in this unique sport.

This adventure appeals to many of all ages and skill levels, thanks to the program’s legacy of providing quality instruction, supervision, and remarkable leaders. In the past decade, a collaborative effort involving experts, architects, and engineering professionals has been underway to redevelop and enhance the usage of those acres.

Phase 1 of the renovation focuses on the creation of new clay pigeon fields, catering to beginners and experts alike, complete with throwers and fully-bermed 50 and 200-yard target shooting ranges.  Over $200,000 has been raised for the initial phase of the project, scheduled for completion in 2024.

We will consider future plans for this site, after completing this phase of work, and in consideration with overall Fort Future project plans.
