Liberty Shooting Camp and Seminar

Hillsdale College is hosting their annual Ladies for Liberty seminar and shooting camp on June 5-9 2016. The camp teaches women of all experience levels shooting sports techniques and gun safety. Participants also attend lectures by Hillsdale College faculty members on topics related to the Constitution, including the Second Amendment.

“The Ladies for Liberty Shooting Camp is a great way for women of all experience levels and backgrounds to meet other women who are interested in the shooting sports,” said Sheila Hoekstra, certified National Rifle Association instructor and one of the camp’s coaches. “The atmosphere helps women feel like they can ask anything, enabling them to learn more effectively and erasing the stereotype of shooting sports as a male-only hobby.”

Ladies for Liberty is held at the Hillsdale College John A. Halter Shooting Sports Education Center, a 105-acre, state-of–the-art training facility five miles from main campus. An enrollment fee of $1,200 covers lodging, meals, lectures, and receptions at the Dow Conference Center on the Hillsdale College campus, as well as all lessons held at the Halter Shooting Sports Education Center.

Training topics include an introduction to handgun function and operation led by competitive shooter Sheila Hoekstra, seminar on the Constitution from a Hillsdale College faculty member, self-defense at home and away, comparison of semi-automatic pistols and revolvers, selecting self-defense accessories, a NRA Refuse To Be A Victim course, and introduction to clay target shooting led by Halter Shooting Center Range Master Bart Spieth

Winchester and Smith & Wesson are sponsors for this event. Shooters ages 21 and up are welcome. Light-recoiling handguns will be available and attendees may bring their own firearms upon approval by event staff in advance.
