There is a strong emphasis on outdoor education and recruitment of youth into the hunting and fishing sports.

Application Process

There is not a stringent requirement to accept students into Polestar Outdoors. Simply complete the online Student Application and a director / mentor will reach out to determine if certain criteria are met and accommodations can be made based on certain activity engagements. Hunting and fishing will have state regulations that must be satisfied before the student can participate, as well as demonstrated firearm proficiency and safety. Shooting competitions must adhere and comply with organizational regulations and may include entry fees, Some activities may involve travel and lodging and will require parental consent (or chaperone) and disclosure of health / dietary restrictions. It is our strong desire that students find activities they wish to participate and pursue. Safety is our primary concern while participating and misbehavior will not be tolerated.
