The weekend of October 18-20, Troop 850 will hold our Gun Club Campout at the Fairfield Sportsmen’s Association located at 6501 River Road, 4 miles off Blue Rock Road. Scouts will be able to earn the Rifle merit badge or, if they have already earned the Rifle merit badge, they can earn the Shotgun merit badge. There is a gun safety program on Friday night, so Scouts will not be allowed to attend Saturday only.
This is a great opportunity to experience a Scout weekend campout with your son, so we hope to have a great turnout of parents and Scouts. Additional adult participation is especially needed for this campout to increase safety and to keep our younger Scouts focused.
Cost will be $25 per person. We ask that permission slips and payments be turned in by October 8th, 10 days prior to the campout, to make planning for the campout easier.
