The operation of BB and archery ranges for Cub Scout activities and events, including Cub Scout day camp, Cub Scout or Webelos resident camp, Mom and me, dad-n-lad, parent and pal, and council-operated family camping programs require qualified, trained range masters. Cub Scout BB and archery range master training is administered by the council’s shooting sports committee and is conducted by a BSA shooting sports director or a National Rifle Association currently certified rifle instructor and a USA Archery/NFAA instructor for archery. This certification is valid for two years.
Please Note: Cub Scout shooting sports programs may be conducted only on a district or council level. Archery and BB gun shooting are restricted to day camps, Cub Scout/ Webelos Scout resident camps, council-managed family camping programs, or to council activities where there are properly trained supervisors and all standards for BSA shooting sports are enforced. Archery and BB gun shooting are not to be done at the pack level.
