Range Rentals and Unit Shoots





If you are a Scouting Unit looking for somewhere to hold your next shooting sports activity, then the ranges at the Dan Beard Scout Reservation may be the place for you. The ranges can be rented by the day, prices are always reasonable, and instructors can be provided to instruct and facilitate your program. 

Programs Available

Cub Scouts can participate in BB or Archery programs and can earn the Belt Loops when you use the ranges and instructors at Cub World.  Both target and "action" shooting are available to give scouts the opportunity to enjoy these programs again and again.

Boy Scouts can shoot bows and arrows at our Archery Ranges, or .22 rifles and shotguns at the Camp Friedlander Shooting Sports Complex.· Scouts can work on the associated merit badges or just do some recreational shooting with their troop using some of our new plinking targets.

Venture Scouts can do all of this and they can try their hand at pistol shooting with our new Ruger Mark III handguns.



Safety and Operations

The shooting sports programs at the Dan Beard Scout Reservation are ran by trained volunteers and staff.  Our Instructors and Range Safety Officers are locally trained as BSA and NRA instructors by NRA Training Counselors.  The instructors will make sure your Scouts have a fun and exciting experiences while ensuring they learn and observe the rules of safe gun handling.

Reserving the Ranges

In order to operate any of the ranges at the Dan Beard Scout Reservation, a certified instructor must oversee the activities.  A Range Safety Officer must also be present at the Rifle and Shotgun ranges. These staff can be provided for your group by the Shooting Sports Committee of the Dan Beard Council.

To reserve a shoting range for your unit, contact the Dan Beard Council at (513) 577-7700 to check availability. More information about reserving camp can be found on the Facility Rental page.
