Jan 13-14 2018 Outing – Bull Run Shooting and Snyder Camping


When:     January 13-14, 2018

Where:    Bull Run Regional Park Campground, Centreville, VA 

Time:      Arrive at the St. Francis parking lot at 8:00am, January 14
                 Return to Great Falls Library mid afternoon on Sunday, January 15 

NOTE:  Due to scheduled activities at St. Francis, scouts will return to the GF public library on Sunday!  Pickup there instead of the church parking lot.

Scouts will enjoy shotgun shooting at the Bull Run Shooting Center and winter car camping at Camp Snyder. Scouts will take part in a “Learn to Shoot” class beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, January 13, where they will learn gun safety, handling, and cleaning of a shotgun and then each will take turns shooting skeet. The scouts will then leave for Camp Snyder for scout skills reviews and overnight tent camping.

Troop 55 will use this opportunity to learn gun safety and shooting skills, as well as scout skill development during the day.  Scouts should pack a heavy snack or lunch to eat after the shooting program. We will bring our trailer with all troop and patrol
equipment, and as always, meals are planned and prepared by patrols. Patrols will be responsible for dinner on Saturday and Sunday breakfast.

Scouts must be prepared for cold weather, and should remember the need for layered, synthetic clothing when they pack. Rain gear and a warm sleeping bag is a must, as well as a change into warm dry clothes (no cotton) for sleeping, extra layers (no cotton) to add on, and extra pairs of dry socks. It will be cold in the evening.

There is a $60 fee for each scout and parent attending (includes $10 transportation fee, shooting class, meals & camping). Cost is only $50 for each scout and parent if the parent is driving.

A $10 LATE FEE WILL BE ADDED FOR ALL REGISTRATIONS MADE AFTER JANUARY 10, 2018.
