The 2024 camper registration will be up in July
There will be two camps, Camp Rushford and Camp Mandaville, trying to open a 3rd camp.
Please e-mail the Camp Directors with questions. Their phone numbers will be forwarded to you via e-mail for final coordination if needed, and emergency contact.
We cannot wait to see your campers!
This website is dedicated to Pat Arnold's vision to bring trapping to our youth. The program Pat started has been very successful. Each year we are getting more and more kids to enroll. So many kids in fact that we added a new camp in 2014. None of this could have been possible without the steadfast committment of Pat Arnold. Please visit the Pat Arnold Tribute Page to learn more about Pat Arnold.
The Pat Arnold Youth Camps are owned and operated by the New York State Trappers Associaton.
NYSTA would like to thank the Oswego County Trappers Assocation for sponsoring this Website.
