Metso camps are targeted at 10–16 year-olds interested in hunting. The camp usually lasts 3–5 days. The topics practised at the camps relate to wildlife, game management, hunting and shooting. The programme often includes a day on the shooting range and the opportunity to get to know hunting dogs. Everyone can participate in a Metso camp, regardless of their previous hunting experience. The camps offer a good opportunity to learn about hunting and to take the first steps on the wilderness trail.
In addition, it is often possible to pass the hunting examination at a Metso camp. Candidates can prepare for the examination by reading the Metsästäjän Opas guidebook and practising on the Riistainfo site of the Finnish Wildlife Agency.
MiniMetso camps are intended for 6–12 year-old children. All children interested in game and hunting are welcome to the camps.
MiniMetso Camps are one-day events on the theme of hunting for children about 6–12 years old who are interested in topics relating to game and hunting. During the day the children can, for example, shoot with a bow or an air rifle, get acquainted with hunting dogs, first aid skills or game feeding, and make a campfire or a nest box. The main thing is to be able to work with one’s own hands and have fun together around the theme of wildlife.
