NRA Chapters in Kentucky provided thousands of dollars in grant funding in 2014 to the Dan Beard Council. These funds provided for new Genesis Bows, ammunition, shotgun targets and many other beneficial program supplies. These funds provided the Dan Beard Council with the ability to improve the program for our Scouts and offer a safe and enjoyable experience.
Please help us to extend our thanks.
For many Scouts, Summer Camp is their first experience shooting a BB gun or a rifle, or drawing back a bow and for many it can spark a life-long passion. We understand that finding other oportunities to fuel that passion and develop your skills can be difficult and expensive. For that reason, we offer many ways in which a Troop, Pack, Crew or individual Scout can come to camp year round and experience Shooting Sports.
If you have questions about the Dan Beard Council shooting sports please call the Scout Achievement Center at 513-577-7700 and they will get you in touch with the proper person.
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 for a morning Session of 8AM until Noon or an afternoon session of 1PM until 5PM. We welcome Scouting, Non-Profit, and Corporate groups, and prices are always reasonable. Our Council Shooting Sports Committee provides Rangemasters, Instructors, and/or Range Safety Officers for your convenience on the 3rd weekend of every month. The other weekends of the month are available for those units who already have trained adults to run the ranges.

Do you enjoy Shooting Sports and want to help teach Scouts about the exciting opportunities and that come with competitive and recreational shooting? Then you should consider becoming a NRA Instructor.
