Shooting Sports

Most programs are based upon one-hour sessions for scheduling purposes.

Unit size and activity will determine the actual length.

Pricing Change:  Due to ongoing increases for ammunition and maintenance supplies, please note that effective January 1, 2024, adult volunteers will be changed half price for participation in shooting sports as opposed to not being charged.

No personal firearms, including BB guns or archery equipment may be brought to the Citta Scout Reservation. Personal hearing and/or eye protection are permitted.

 

PROGRAM SUGGESTION: Great activity for your unit to do while camping at CSR!

Cub Scout Program
