The Outdoor Sportsman Specialty teaches several survival and outdoor skills in a fun and safe environment. Some of the skills taught include:
- Outdoor Survival Skills
- Leadership Skills
The ODS woods on our property are where your child will learn about being an Outdoor Sportsman. This is where our fire-pits, archery / riflery range and team-building activities are as well as multiple water stations spread out all around. We know exercise and hydration go hand in hand and we take hydration seriously here at T Bar M Camps. Each child is given their very own personalized water bottle and goes with them to the ODS woods.
Our college-aged staff come from universities around Texas and the surrounding states. Our staff pass detailed background checks and are highly trained to work with your children. Our counselors know the importance of building confidence in your child's ability while also teaching them to enjoy the great outdoors. Our staff is not only there to increase your child's ODS skills and knowledge, but also to teach the importance of character and teamwork.
ODS is a great way to make new friends and learn the art of sportsmanship. Each child is given a booklet to take home to remind them what they accomplished! We call this booklet their "Sports Journal". Your child will write in their Sports Journals each day. The Journal will include:
- Goals they have set
- Notes on ODS instruction
- Their favorite ODS drills and games
- An individual skill evaluation from their coach
- A written note of encouragement from their coach
The ODS Specialty requires no extra clothing or equipment.
