About Our Instructors
professional + Passionate
KOSC prides themselves on providing top-level instruction. All KOSC and Red Bank Outfitters staff are CPR and First Aid certified.
KOSC’s lead firearms instructors have extensive knowledge regarding all types of firearms. They have been through the highest level training at Gun Site in Arizona, which is one of the top firearms training facilities in the country. Gun Site trains military and peace officers and KOSC is lucky enough to have had their firearms instructors complete the Gun Site program. KOSC instructors are also certified Level One National Sporting Clay Instructors and NRA Pistol, Rifle and Shotgun Instructors.
Several of KOSC’s Lead firearms instructors are also top-notch hunting guides who work with hundreds of hunters year-round in the field. They practice firearm safety on a daily basis while ensuring their hunters are not only successful but safe. These skills directly carry over to our summer camps when it comes to teaching the kids proper gun handling, and ensuring they are all safe while on the range. All KOSC instructors strive to make sure the kids are safe, skilled, and successful while on the range, and KOSC is proud to have a clean safety record for all 23 years of camp.
