The Place Families Keep Coming Back To


Youth Village serves as “family-central” at Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic

By Kim Cole, Habitat Education Programs Manager for PF & QF

National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic is known as a family-friendly … no, make the family-centered event.

The whole show is built that way. But one big corner makes it particularly so. Welcome to The Youth Village! See a sample rundown of some of the activities available to keep little hands and minds busy.

The Youth Village is well-staffed with help, including members of our National Youth Leadership Council: wholesome, outdoor-oriented teens your kids can look up to!

All of the efforts made today by Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever have little impact without future conservation leaders taking a stand for wildlife conservation, and the Youth Village is bult to engage those future hunters, anglers, and lovers of wild things and wild places.

A special thank you to these organizations and exhibitors for helping provide activities at Youth Village throughout the weekend: South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks – The Outdoor Campus Sioux Falls, Sioux County Conservation Board, Iowa Association of Naturalists, Project Healing Waters, and Simply Ever After Entertainment, LLC.

We’ll see you there … on all your swings back (kids love The Youth Village!).
