About this event

Come to BSA Camp Pigott and learn how to handle and shoot firearms. We will have .22 rifles, muzzleloading rifles, shotguns, pistols (high school only), and archery. Scouts can freely rotate through each of these during the day. If you don’t want to handle any guns, you can even spend the day just at archery. Tomahawks and slingshots will be available, depending on if we volunteers for that. Why teach shooting sports? Good shooting requires learning positive traits such as patience, determination, focus, attention to detail, and persistence. Since these skills are likewise key elements of leadership, we encourage our girls to take what they learn from any sport or activity in Girl Scouting and apply it to their participation in their communities and world. The firearms they will be learning about are expressly purposed to hit a target. They will be learning gun safety. We are not advocating shooting in particular. We want them to understand how to handle any gun safely. Instruction will be by NRA certified, BSA trained volunteers. Safety rules for both BSA and GSWW will be followed. If you have questions, refer to the GSWW safety essentials: https://www.girlscoutsww.org/content/dam/girlscouts-girlscoutsww/documents/shooting-sports-safety-activity-checkpoints.pdf
