Yes to the education, and at 9 she's old enough. Their hunts are highly recommended, great volunteers who are there to help educate your child enjoy and hunt the outdoors. My 2 boys got their first Deer and Turkey on TYHP hunts. They are well organized, well run, very safe and you get to hunt on places you might never do otherwise. For Youth weekend this year, my 15 yr old got his first Turkey, the trip cost us $100. The next weekend, hunters from all over the country paid $1,200 to go shoot the same birds.
Some hunts have great accomodations, others you may be in a tent.
