Welcome to Hebden Hey Scout Centre


Shooting & Archery Day: Sunday 2nd April 2017

Click for PDFThis event at Hebden Hey has run for the past seven years. In previous years as a competition, but this day is more than that... a whole day of shooting at different targets and with different equipment than you willl have done before, not incompetition with others, but see how well you can score yourself at both shooting and archery.

There are a number of bases:

as well as a number of more challenging bases to make the day more fun.

NEW for 2017

TRAINING AND TUITION DAY - SATURDAY 1 APRIL

If you would like to learn how to use the equipment, or even just get a bit of practise for the following days event, we are running a training day as we did not have time last year to show people during the competition.

We only charge an extra £5 for the training, please let us know if you are coming on the Saturday as well, as places are limited.

The bases are run in turn, so you need to be here at the START TIME of 10am.

This year the competition is open to all Explorer Scouts

No need for uniforms, though a necker would be good. It is more important to dress for the weather as it can be cold!

Eveyone will get to use the equipment provided, so there is no need to bring your own guns or bows.

Get your leader to book you a place, you'll need some food for lunch and money for the tuck shop.

The event relies on the volunteer help of local Scouting leaders, please let us know if you can help - even if you do not have a shooting or archery qualification you will be most welcome.
