Current Monthly Campout
Scouts and Parents
The Troop 70 January Camp Out will be the annual shooting sports camp out. Scouts will be able to try archery,.22 caliber rifle and 12 gauge shotgun shooting and earn credit towards up to three three shooting sports merit badges.
Troop 70 will camp at a new location, BSA Camp Tellepsen near Navasota, Texas. This recently opened camp has ample facilities to ensure that the scouts will have plenty of opportunity to participate in shooting sports activities. See the camp here: http://www.samhoustonbsa.org/tellepsen-scout-camp
Limited spots for rifle, shotgun and archery merit badge classes will be announced separately. Typically, Troop 70 offers safety and other relevant training prior to the shooting camp out to ensure that the scouts are prepared to participate at the camp out. Please plan to have scouts attend troop meetings on January 7 and 14, 2019.
Scouts already having partial merit badge credit will be able to finish their badges at this camp out. It is unlikely that a scout can complete both rifle and shotgun merit badge at this camp out unless the scout has already started at least one badge or has prior shooting experience.
Non-merit badge scouts may have the opportunity to have at least one session each of rifle, shotgun and archery.
