Kicking Bear Foundation

Ridge Road Outdoors has teamed up with the Kicking Bear Foundation to help support there missions statement: Put a bow in a kid’s hand and lead their family to the Lord-one-on-one. 

The Kicking Bear Ministry Impacts the youth of tomorrow by giving them opportunities to enjoy God’s creation, while experiencing fun outdoor activities such as archery, and to make new friends. Nothing we do is as important as the impact we have on today’s youth. These outdoor activities help youth develop values, skills, and relationships.

The campouts, shoots and other events are a great way to introduce youth to the outdoors and to the sport of archery. The program’s mission is to help underprivileged and at-risk youth, or any youth, who wants to get into the outdoors. Kicking Bear events are free to everyone who wishes to participate. By encouraging others to reach outside their homes, we can help break the cycle and put dreams in these kids' hearts that will change not only their lives, but their families' lives to come.

The Kicking Bear Ministry is a nationwide faith-based, non-denominational youth program. It was founded in 2000 by Ray Howell as a 501(c)3 organization. Kicking Bear is valued as an important outreach to the Christian community.
