Pinewood, SC - May 20, 2024 The South Carolina Waterfowl Association has partnered with Smith & Wesson, a leading firearms manufacturer, to develop SCWAs youth handgun safety course at Camp Woodie. Camp Woodie is a summer camp program which focuses on passing on the heritage of hunting, fishing and conservation to youth ages 7-16 through a variety of outdoor activities. This course is being offered specifically to our 15- and 16-year-old campers, and will take place at the new 25 bay pistol and rifle range. SCWAs new handgun safety course is designed to teach young people gun safety through proper training and education, in an effort to prevent future firearm-related accidents. According to SCWA CEO, David Wielicki: The SCWA Team is excited to partner with the Smith & Wesson Team to promote handgun safety and training to the next generation of shooting sports enthusiasts. SCWA and Smith & Wesson share the core values of Safety and Quality in all of our programs.

Empowerment through firearm ownership carries an equal responsibility to not only be educated, but also proficient. It is a pledge to safeguard our communities and uphold our constitutional rights as Americans.
