Field Sports

If you crave a bang or a twang, then Field Sports is for you. More than any other area Field Sports tests the discipline and skills of a Scout. All of our shooting ranges emphasize safety and fun. The rules may seem strict, but they assure a safe place for Scouts to hone their shooting skills.

Troop Shoots: All of our ranges are available for Troop Shoots during open shoot times. If you would like to sign up, see the range master. Be aware that slots do fill up quickly.

Scoutmaster Shooting Competition: During the week, times will be announced for Scoutmaster shooting competitions at each of the ranges. The scores form each range will be tallied and to determine the Least Skunky Shooter of the week.

National Boy Scout policy does not allow personal fire arms, bows, or ammunition at Boy Scout camp.

For Black Powder Rifles and Tomahawks see O'Rilley's Outpost
