Did you want to help out at Council events in Archery and BB Gun? Did you know BB gun shooting must be conducted by trained, qualified, on-site rangemasters who direct the operation of the range program and BB gun shooting instruction. The ratio of BB gun rangemasters to shooters is 1-to-8 on the firing line. Archery must be instructed by a current USA Archery Level 1 instructor.
If you don’t meet those requirements, we have news for you! Level 1 Archery and BB Gun Rangemaster is being offered May 15, 2021. Register Now!
The purpose of the “Trail to First Class Palooza” is to provide newer Scouts a more focused approach to help them develop the skills they need to advance to Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class. This one-day program will allow these Scouts to truly learn the skills, as well as give them potentially more time to earn other merit badges this summer at camp.
