Pheasants Forever North Central PA Chapter 630 is proud to sponsor the annual Foundation Hunt project for terminally ill and handicapped youth from our area. This project was started in 2009 and to date more than 35 qualified kids and their families have participated in this all expenses paid weekend adventure. The event takes place at the beautiful Queenstown Lodge near East Brady, PA where the kids, their families including siblings, and our volunteers enjoy great outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, riding UTVs, geocaching, kayaking, and horseback riding. Memories to last a lifetime are created for all involved. The 2023 Foundation Hunt will take place the weekend of September 13 - 15, 2023.
Pheasants Forever works in conjunction with The Elk County Community Foundation to locate, screen, and select applicants in north central PA and surrounding communities. Qualifications include youth under 21 years old with a terminal illness or permanent disability.
Physical limitations are considered for the outdoor activities and special requests will be considered. We will work with the families participating to create an individualized experience. We realize these illnesses affect the entire family and we want everyone to have a fun and relaxing time.
As with all Pheasant Forever events, we take every measure of safety for the participant and their families. It is our goal to make this a very fulfilling event for the kids, their families, and the volunteers.
