What an awesome opportunity for these kids to get professional instruction at a state of the art facility. I was fortunate to have taken my carry class at this facility, and I can say there is nothing like Sealed Mindset in the Twin Cities area. The Yatchs' real world experience lends a unique slant to the training.

Former Marine, there are no "ex-Marines". And a little girl shooting a big gun would not involve a .22 cal. That's about the smallest rifle you can have.

I give very high praise to the camp. Thank you for teaching kids about reality. It is better that they learn that it is okay to fail at a younger age because learning from mistakes is what makes us better. These kids will be competing to get into colleges, for scholarships, and eventually jobs. The more preparation they have the better. Thank you.

I did a private lesson with Larry Yatch. Awesome experience. I hope to put my boys through the Victory Games. These are extraordinary trainers on many levels - safety, decision-making, awareness, etc. I can only imagine how great this would be for kids.

This camp sounds like a great idea for youngsters BUT having a 10 year old child handle "a shiny replica assault rifle" is not an appropriate activity for a summer camp teaching winning and losing and the benefits of both.

Building strong, confident, independent, young girls. And boys. Every youth should get training in the handling and respect of firearms. Even if you never plan on owning one.
