Now, through new grants totaling $2,000 from the Long Compton Fund and NWTF, the 45 student members of the club will benefit from additional equipment and training.

NASP was developed to help improve student motivation, attention, and focus, and to teach outdoor skills, resulting in character and self-reliance development.
