Mallard Manor Ministries is an exciting youth hunting and fishing program that began in 2006 in an effort to provide a place for young people to develop their outdoor skills, develop friendships, and learn more about Jesus Christ, who has made all of this possible.
We host summer outdoor youth camps for ages 10-14 and 14-18, as well as other youth activities. Youth are very important at Mallard Manor and our goal is to foster a Christian atmosphere where young people are encouraged to be all that God desires them to be and have a blast in the outdoors doing so! Please contact us if you or someone you know may be interested in sending a youth to one of our programs.
MMM Outdoorsman Camp Program
Our summer program is a blast! We take a group of youth and place them into a small camp atmosphere where they can develop new friendships and their skills in the outdoors. Regardless if a youth is an avid hunter or none at all, the program is designed in such a way to involve everyone. Below is a list of activities that youth may be involved with during particular camps:
3D Archery Shoot
World Class Five Stand Clay Target Challenge
Fishing (bass, bream and crappie)
Bowfishing:air boat or pier fishing
Game Calling Seminar
Decoy Placement (species identification and hunting strategies)
Dog Training Seminar
Predator Hunting and Seminar
Treestand Safety and Placement Seminar
Deer Tracking Skills & Scouting Techniques
MS Hunters Education Certification (specific summer camps)
Fun At the Lake!
MMM DiscipleNOW Youth Hunts
As a youth, did you ever wish that you would have had the opportunity to go hunting more but never had a place to go or anyone to take you? Or perhaps, you are a parent in today’s world wanting some way to teach your youth about hunting and the way of life that outdoorsmen enjoy but just don’t have the resources to do so. Well, this program is designed to fulfill these needs.
The DiscipleNOW youth hunting program is a mentoring program with the goal to give youth awesome hunting opportunities in the outdoors and help them better understand what life's journey is all about! We encourage youth through Bible study in the duck blind or maybe on the dove field to know God personally through His Son Jesus and to live each day of their lives under the authority of God's Word. We want youth to understand that God wants them to be young men who live with the purpose of glorifying Him. It is an easy assumption to say that we guides probably have just as much fun as the kids on these weekends! Check out some past DNOW Hunt pictures!
Church Retreats & Staff Meetings
Our facility is also available to rent during the off-season. Church groups and other organizations may want to hold their retreats or maybe even their staff meetings here at Mallard Manor. We desire that this be a place of refuge for all who come to Mallard Manor.

Youth Duck Hunts
These events have been a hit since 2006 and fill up fast due to only 16 young men being able to participate in a weekend. This is a great opportunity to send your youth to a professional duck hunting operation at a price well below market value and invest not only in their experience in the outdoors but also in their relationship with the One who created it all. We usually duck hunt Saturday and Sunday mornings and do an afternoon activity on Saturdays such as one of the following:goose hunt, rabbit hunt, snipe hunt, or clay shoot.
All Inclusive Price $375.00
Scholarship may be available if needed.

DiscipleNOW Youth Dove/Teal Hunt
Many of our young people in the summer kept mentioning that they would love to go on a dove hunt if we would plan one. Well, we decided to offer the same great experience we have had with our duck hunting program on the dove field. Safety is our utmost concern and youth are required to wear safety glasses at all times on the field and are spread out evenly across a large field with our counselors. The cost is $210 for the weekend which includes 2-3 hunts (depending on success of Saturday a.m. hunt) clay shoot, lodging and meals.

Mallard Manor Ministries Important Information
Reservation Policy: In order for your child’s name to be placed on a particular date for any of our programs, we must have a 50% deposit due within 7 days or request and signed release form.
For example: If we receive a call or email requesting a particular date, we will notify you ASAP whether or not it is available. If it is available, we will pencil your child’s name in for the event for 7 days while we wait to receive your deposit check via mail. After the 7 days are up, your child’s name will NOT be placed on the attendee list until a deposit is received in the office. If the date is already full by the time the deposit is received, then if any dates are still available, we will give you the next available date option. The final balance will be due 2 weeks prior to arrival. Our goal with our ministry programs is to maximize our impact on kids and we cannot do this when we turn away youth due to unknown cancellations. We believe that this will best serve our youth as we seek to keep offering this wonderful experience in the future.
Cancellation Policy: Mallard Manor Ministries requires parents to give a 2 week notice to cancel their event date. If a parent cancels less than 2 weeks prior to the event, all funds will be forfeited and the parent will have the option to find a replacement to go in their child’s place instead. Otherwise, funds will be used by Mallard Manor to scholarship another child.
Rooming Policy: We often receive the request from parents for their child to room with a particular child attending our programs. We do strive to honor these requests, however, in some instances these requests may not be granted due to number of attendees that week, timeliness of reservation, and behavior. We believe that part of the program experience is for youth to branch out of their normal routine and form new friendships.
If your child will be attending a specific camp session that includes Hunter’s Education Certification; the state of MS requires them to be at least 10 years of age, possess their social security number and valid mailing address in order to receive certification.
