2023 Youth Waterfowl Hunting and Education Camp


The MDWFP annually partners with Ducks Unlimited, Inc. to host the Youth Waterfowl Hunting and Education Camp. The camp's mission is to recruit and retain waterfowl hunters and to increase support for wetland conservation and waterfowl hunting in Mississippi. Youth ages 13-15 are encouraged to apply. Because of limited space, only 12 youth will be selected for the camp. All applications will be ranked by the content of the application questions and youth will be notified if they were selected for the camp soon after applications close.

This year's camp is scheduled for February 2-5, 2023 at Muscadine Farms Wildlife Management Area. Prior hunting experience is not required to attend, however, a desire to learn about waterfowl, wetlands, and hunting is needed. Meals and lodging will be provided for campers and staff. Parents and/or guardians are not permitted to attend. An application form is linked below in a fillable pdf format. The application can also be printed for completion. The deadline for applications will be December 16. For more information, contact Houston Havens at (662) 299-0273 or
