  • Pistol Shooting doesn’t have times shown. The pistol course is taught at camp for Scouts 14 or older. The sign up will not be on the online registration system. It is a very limited class and therefore they offer signups at camp and typically use a lottery system.
  • Is your first-year scout program a full day or half day program? The Summer Camp first-year program is 1/2 day, all week. The remaining half day can be used for taking merit badge classes. The leaders guide has symbols next to the badges that are suggested for younger scouts.
  • How old must Scouts be to take the Shotgun Shooting Merit badge? The camp does not set an age limit on Shotgun or Rifle Shooting Merit badges however, you should use extreme discretion when signing up for these badges. Both Shotguns and rifles are heavy and some smaller kids do not have the physical strength to handle these firearms. This is particularly noticeable with shotguns. The proper stance, recoil, and volume of shots required to qualify are all factors that affect a young Scout’s ability to pass this badge. It is highly suggested that this badge be restricted to older Scouts that can handle a 10lb target rifle and shotgun.
