DO NOT bring personal firearms or ammo to camp. Scouts are required to attend the pre-class safety briefing. Bring completed workbook to the briefing. Scouts will be required to pass a written exam administered toward the end of the week. Put your name and troop number on your workbook and bring to the Shooting Sports safety briefing. Proper posture is part of the merit badge. Appropriate physical contact is a part of the course. Leaders should address special needs with the Shooting Sports Director after the safety briefing. Bring merit badge book and pen or pencil to class.
