November 2013 Campout

Our troop went on a shooting campout in Red Feather Colorado. If you didn’t go you missed out on a whole lot. We stayed 2 nights November 9th through the 11th. During our camp trip, we got to shoot a 22 caliber rifle and a 12 gage shotgun. Anyone under the age of 14 shot single shot rifles and the pump shotgun but if you were a Venture Scout you were able to shoot semi animatic rifles, and magazine, shot semi animatic shotgun and or a double barrel shotguns. Also available to the Adventure Scouts were AR15s and 30-6s. this 2 night campout allowed us to get 25 frost points for the trip. Also we worked on 3 main merit badges rifle shooting, shotgun shooting, and cooking merit badges. I believe the cooking merit badge will be an Eagle required badge now in January 2014. The campout taught us how to be careful, and responsible with a gun. We shot about 2000 rounds of 22 and about 1000 rounds of shot gun.
