Each summer, boys can’t wait for their turn on the firing line at the Cub World’s BB gun range, one of the most popular program areas for Cub and Webelos campers. Under the careful watch of Tuckahoe’s well-trained range officers, campers quickly master proper shooting techniques and are soon happily hitting target after target.
BB gun shooting for Cub Scouts is 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 shooting is not to be done at the pack level. However, leaders can help parents understand the importance of training and encourage attendance of boys at Cub Scout camps that offer this training. Parents attending Tuckahoe with their sons are strongly encouraged to take a hands-on role in helping their sons get started in learning how to properly handle and fire a BB gun.
BB gun shooting programs offered at Tuckahoe’s Cub World provides boys with outstanding opportunities to learn archery skills and earn the BB gun belt loop and sports pin.
