Council Shooting Sports Programs

(for Boy Scouts and Venturers) 

Scout Units, Venturing Units, and Districts are welcome to reserve the archery, rifle, and/or shotgun ranges at Bert Adams Scout Reservation or Robert W. Woodruff Scout Reservation. The Boy Scouts of America adheres to its longstanding policy of teaching its youth and adult members the safe, responsible, intelligent handling, care, and use of firearms and archery equipment in planned, carefully managed, and supervised programs. Experienced directors and instructors will be present to management shooting events and to help improve individual skills to become more proficient.

No need to bring any equipment. All of the equipment needed for the shooting events is available. Scouts who already posses shooting skills will be given an opportunity to complete the shooting portion of the Archery, Rifle, or Shotgun Merit Badge requirements. For scouts participating in shotgun shooting, it is suggested that participants be at least age 13 and/or physically capable of safely handling a shotgun. Scout's participation in shotgun shooting is at the discretion of the Shotgun Director.
