Shooting Sports Days

Shooting Sports Days are a special opportunity for new Scouts to attend their first district event with their friends and to make new ones! The focus is for every Scout to have a safe and fun day where they have the opportunity to participate in Archery & BB instruction, as well as other activities such as hiking, camping, or even a Cubmobile race. For your convenience, most districts in the Middle Tennessee Council will host their specific event on a Saturday later this month or next month in October. For more information, please contact your local pack or visit the council website at: https://www.mtcbsa.org/CubScoutOpportunities/ShootingSportsDays
