Shooting, Hunting & Ethics Education Programs
The 2017-2018 fiscal year youth programs associated with S.H.E.E.P. have been generously sponsored by the nonprofit Cabela’s Outdoor Fund. The goal of the Cabela’s Outdoor Fund is simple: to leave a long-lasting impact on the outdoor community by providing and enhancing opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, with a special focus on youth outdoors learning experiences. Cabela’s accomplishes this mission by asking customers if they wish to round up their purchases in Cabela’s stores to the nearest dollar; the difference is invested in the fund.
