Scouts will travel up to Cutter Scout Reservation and camp among the beautiful California redwoods.  After attending a mandatory safety briefing Friday evening, they will eat snacks at a Cracker Barrel and then get a chance to participate in a wide range of shooting sports activities on Saturday and Sunday.  All meals will be provided and served at the Harkson Lodge.

Scouts will be grouped into patrols of 16 and rotate through the 8 stations on Saturday. Many stations will be open for free shoot on Sunday.  Experienced instructors will conduct safety briefings, supervise all activities, and provide expert instruction.
