The theme of the campout is Shooting Sports. All Youth members of the troop are eligible to shoot 22 caliber Rifles and 20 gauge shotguns during the event. We will also have the archery range open. The firearms and ammunition will be provided. No personnel firearms or ammunition allowed. The cost is $45 per Scout, $20 per adult. Due to time constraints we are not allocating time for the Adults to Shoot. The Scouts will be assigned to groups so that they can rotate through the 4 activities, Rifle, Shotgun, Archery, and Service Project.
There is a mandatory Scout Safety briefing at the Monday night meeting on March 20,2023, all Scouts attending the campout must attend this training.
