Tennessee Outdoors Youth Summit (TOYS)

Due to Covid-19 our Tennessee Outdoor Youth Summit will look a little different this year. We will be having a field day where we will enjoy some of the same activities as in the past but in a smaller session. Hopefully 2022 will be back on track! Sorry for the inconvenience. I look forward to having a fun filled field day.

Teaching the next generation about the exciting world of outdoor recreation and fundamentals.

If you had to make a list of skills essential to outdoor lovers, what would be on it? Most likely you’d put down camping and hunting, which of course includes things like marksmanship, turkey calling, antler scoring, archery, wilderness surviva, fishing, boat driving, plant identification, and photography. Now that’s quite a list! But those are only a few of the activities taught at the Tennessee Outdoors Youth Summit.

For high school students from across Tennessee. This camp, hosted by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency in cooperation with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation, is a way to teach the next generation about the exciting world of outdoor recreation.
