These additional activities are available by the generosity of local Scout and Cub leaders who provide the instruction and equipment. This is in addition to their group commitments, so please contact us early, these activities are fitted around their other commitments, and may not always be available.
We have portable outdoor shooting stalls and target range that can be set up usually at the far end of campsite 8 on an otherwise unused secluded area. This allows up to four .177 air rifles to be used at any one time.
This facility requires pre-booking with one of the centre's approved shooting instructors.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: It is the responsibility of the group leader to ensure that all Scout/Cubs have completed the appropriate permission to shoot form, and have it signed by a parent.
It is possible to use various areas of the site for archery, depending on both other users and the ability to move the targets and backstop netting to the allocated range. We have access to two 1.2m foam archery bosses, so even the most novice of archers can hit the target with a minimum of tuition. There are sufficient bows and arrows suitably sized for youths of Cub age and young Scouts through to adults.
Up to four people can shoot at once, we normally use two instructors and suggest a maximum of eight people per hour to allow time for some tuition and improvement, for first time archers this is usually sufficient time for a decent experience and to start hitting the target regularly.
