I have witnessed perfection and lo and behold, it is our beloved Ted Nugent Kamp for Kids charity. I wish every human being could attend one of these sacred events and see first-hand the sheer joy and effervescent glowing in 100 kid’s eyes. The fiery positive spirit is palpable and perfect, and something very special that gives hope for the future of America.
By Ted Nugent
We just wrapped up the 26th sold-out year of our 501c3 nonprofit all volunteer charity Ted Nugent Kamp For Kids Nebraska event at the wonderful Walnut Creek Lake park in Papillion Nebraska just outside Omaha. Believe me when I tell you that the giddiness is not exclusive to the 100 gungho kids from 7 to 17 years of age. There is no doubt that every parent and volunteer wriggled and grinned with extreme excitement to be a part of it all.
Did I mention it was perfect?
The army of incredible volunteers represents exactly how God intended His miraculous creation in His image and likeness to function. These kind, generous, loving people from every walk of life give 100% of their heart, soul, spirit and energy to guide these kids straight up a TruNorth compass setting in life, and for this old goofy guitarplayer to be a part of it all is truly a highlight of my 67 year American Dream.
Celebrating our perfect hands-on conservation outdoor lifestyle, we enthusiastically teach the universally inspiring mystical flight of the arrow archery discipline, the aim small miss small firearms safety marksmanship discipline, the critical essentiality of hunting, trapping, fishing, slingshot fun, atlatl accuracy, hands-on woodsmanship and basic 1st aid and survival skills.
All this Life 101 reality is wrapped up in a powerfully unambiguous battlecry that happiness is only possible when you are clean and sober!
Clean and sober! Say Hallelujah!
Our NE Kamp, just like our phenomenal TNKFK events in Iowa, Colorado and South Dakota, it only happens because an army of special people are eager to make serious sacrifices in their lives for the betterment of America’s youth.
A special thank you is certainly due to the 100s and 100s of volunteers over the years, and to each and every one of you, a sincere, double live Gonzo Uncle Ted Thank you, thank you, thank you! God bless each and every one of you and your families.

As we celebrate this perfect example of we the people perfection, we must also hang our heads in shame that for reasons of apathy and embarrassing and inexcusable politically correct disconnect, these life’s basics are not standard curriculum in the American education system.
Environmental responsibility without hunting, fishing and trapping is a lie.
Individual accountability without hands-on conservation and resource stewardship is a lie.
Perfection is rare indeed in this crazy, mixed-up, illogical world, but it is available as long as we the people who know better take the bull by the horns and get the job done!
Go ahead, do something perfect today! America needs it now more than ever!
