Note: Due to Covid restrictions and current ammo shortages, the retreat format may be altered. Currently, the ODNR is unable to provide the trailer with the trap shooting equipment so that will not be a part of this years retreat. Alternative activities such as forging will be scheduled. Please call 937-593-8000 with any questions or concerns.
Marmon Valley Farm invites all men and boys to a Father/Son Sportsman's Retreat. Expect outdoor activities including horseback riding, trap shooting, archery, and rock wall climbing. We have teamed up with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife to provide everything we need for a safe and enjoyable sportsman's event. Whether you have experience or not, this is a great way to experience the outdoors and enjoy the relationships while you're at it. The weekend includes a gun safety course presented with a God-centered emphasis. This is a perfect and safe way to introduce your boys to hunting and shooting sports.
Choose between a one or two night schedule, to best suit your needs. The one-night retreat ends after dinner on Saturday. Children must be at least 7 years old to attend. (For safety reasons firearm activity participation will be dependant on child's age, strength, and ability)
Cost: One-night retreat- $125/person, Two-night retreat- $160/person
Payments are non-refundable but with a 1 week notice we can either transfer to a different retreat or send a gift certificate that can be used here on the farm.
