Wankinquoah Junior Associates
All youths between the ages of 10 and 17. Boys and Girls are eligible to become WRGC Associate Members. The Wankinquoah Junior Associates Social Meetings are held once a month, typically the third Tuesday of the month. Starting at 6:30 PM and running until 8:30 PM, dinner is served, and the meeting is based on conservation projects, outdoor experience, hunting, fishing, sportsmanship, and having fun as a youth group.
The Junior Associate Program is a year-round program starting in September and runs through June. Associates meet in July or August for a yearly field trip. The yearly field trip is determined by the youth. Attendance is kept monthly and those who are vested in time are eligible for discounted field trips.
Here are some of the things youth can expect while being a member:
- Cooking, Fire building, map and compass, competitions, games, themed events, citizenship, conservation, hunting, fishing, and marksmanship.
- Service projects to help the club.
- Fundraising events.
- Yearly Spaghetti Dinner in Fall
- Yearly Annual Tihonet Pond Fishing Derby at AD Makepeace Property Wareham Major
- Social meetings monthly in the main clubhouse
- 2023 will concentrate on the Massachusetts Little Brown Bat conservation of the endangered species in the state.
Youth under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Adults are encouraged to stay and get to know other members and help with the program as needed. Junior Associates Dues are $12.00 per year. The program is supported by the Regular Club Membership and supports the Club through Fundraising. A $5.00 application fee is due at sign up.

NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program offers shooters a self-paced training platform to develop their shooting skills. It’s a drill. We set the standards and you meet the challenge! Progression is self-paced and scores are challenging but attainable. Performance is measured against established par scores and any shooter who meets or exceeds those scores is entitled to the corresponding recognition awards for that rating.
The course of fire in the qualification program are designed to take shooters from beginning skill levels (Pro-Marksman and Marksman) through intermediate levels (Marksman 1st Class, Sharpshooter and Expert) up to the nationally recognized skill level and the pinnacle of the program, Distinguished Expert. By the time a shooter completes the Distinguished Expert rating in rifle, pistol and shotgun, he/she has attained a proficiency level paralleling that of a competitively classified Sharpshooter.
