One of the biggest attractions of Cub Scouting for boys is the chance to shoot bb guns and bows and arrows. I have met few Cub Scout-age boys who don’t get excited about shooting sports.
But as Cub Scout leaders, we need to remember BSA restrictions on shooting sports in the Cub Scout program:
“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.
Cub Scouts are not permitted to use any other type of handgun or firearm.”
To find shooting sports for your Cub Scouts, check with your local scout council to find out when the next council or district event featuring archery and bb shooting will be held.
