About Red Bank Outdoor Academy

During our week-long, highly supervised camps, RBOA will provide students ages 9-15 with hands-on, in-depth instruction in outdoor recreation and conservation skills. RBOA will help youth learn from professionals in each of their areas of expertise in a safe, positive, supportive environment. We teach hunter safety education and each camper will earn a California State Hunter Education Certificate upon completing the week-long course.

Mission Statement

Red Bank Outdoor Academy is dedicated to preserving our outdoor legacy by providing our youth with the highest-level hands-on instructional activities. Our goal is to ensure all youth have the ability to experience hunting and fishing opportunities, learn the importance of wildlife conservation, and build safety and outdoor skills that will last a lifetime.

Each facility offers separate private bathrooms and showers. We have a full-service kitchen and dining room where the kids will be served a family-style breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Some of the food on our camp menu includes burgers, tri-tip, taco’s, spaghetti, and much more!

At Red Bank there are 11 bass and bluegill fishing ponds
An archery range, rifle range, and a trap range. There is a beautiful classroom where students learn outdoor skills and safety, first aid, conservation, and partake in the California Hunter’s Education Course. We also have a custom swimming pool with a wading area, seating area, and waterfall, so students will be able to cool off and escape the Red Bluff summer heat. We have top of the line fully automated trap machines for training during beginning camp, and an 18 station sporting clay course for the advanced campers to fully develop their shooting skills.
