The following Personal Firearms and ammunition policies have been established by the Longhouse Council Camping and Outdoor Program Committee for the health, safety, and protection of all Scouts and Leaders using our camps.
All personal firearms, bows, arrows, or slingshots are to be left at home. Camps will provide rifles (bb, pellet, 22), pellet pistols, bows, slingshots, tomahawks, throwing knives and ammunition for all shooting sports.
Under no circumstances should ammunition for the ranges be brought to camp. This policy insures both the security and the integrity of the ammunition used on our ranges.
If any of these items are brought into camp the Camp Director, Camp Ranger or designee will confiscate them and will return them upon departure from camp.
Credentialed Range Staff Information is outlined on the Range Request Form.
BSA requires BOTH a Certified Instructor and NRA Range Safety Officer(s) anytime firearms range is in operation – RSO may not instruct during shooting. Prior to the start of any shooting event, a Range Safety Briefing must be conducted for those individuals using the range. The actual contents of the briefing may vary depending upon the audience, and the specific nature of the event. Please reference the BSA Shooting Sports Manual to ensure the proper materials are covered based upon the program being run. It would be preferred if this briefing could take place at the actual range, but if that is not practical the briefing can be delivered at a separate location.
Ranges are operated in accordance with BSA National Shooting Sports Manual and Camp Woodland Shooting Sports Range Operating Procedure. The BSA National Shooting Sports Manual can be found at:
