Rifle Merit Badge Day
If you are interested in earning the Rifle Merit Badge, thanks to the creativity of the instructors, a revised format will be available to Scouts who register online by April 13. The $25 fee includes the online classroom work and the range time (date to be determined).
Merit badge requirement work will begin on April 18 with an online classroom session (via Zoom). The online session is designed to cover the classroom requirements for Scouts who participate in the online discussion and do some advanced reading and writing.
Participants will also be required to complete the shooting requirements and clean a rifle in person. Range time at Hoyt Scout Reservation, to complete these requirements, will be scheduled as soon as possible, probably in late May or early June. The in-person range day will start with the mandatory 30-45 minute safety briefing, which is required to occur before all BSA shooting events, followed by a day of rifle shooting, and ending with rifle cleaning.
