Are there turkeys in Camden? How old do the youngsters need to be?
How do they hunt the turkeys down? Is this bow and arrow or what?

NY has turkeys all over. I'm sure you have seen them around. The kids have to be 12 years old with a NYS Hunters Safety Course and no older than 15. Must also be with a parent or adult with written permission. They can use a shotgun or bow, whichever they choose. You should ALWAYS call turkeys to you and never stalk them. Two reasons. First, Stalking a turkey is dangerous because it could be another hunters decoy and you risk the chance of being shot by the other hunter by mistake.(Yes some hunters are not so diligant at identifying their target) Second, turkeys can see 100 times better than humans and will spot you from hundreds of yards away.
This is a great time to get your kids interested in the outdoors. It will also teach them gun safety and teamwork which so many people lack right now.
