YPS Air Rifle Course and Rifle Club at PACCAR

As the upgrade of the Rifle Range approaches completion we are now open to applications for the first YPS Course which will be on Thursday evenings from 7:00pm – 8:00pm, running for 8 weeks starting on Thursday 15 September. Completion of the course will cover the syllabuses of the Scout Master at Arms badge and the NSRA Youth Proficiency Scheme (YPS) as well as fulfilling some of the skills requirement of the D of E and Queens Scout Awards. The cost of the course is £40 (can be paid weekly) which includes the NSRA Handbook etc. Email office@paccarscoutcamp.org for application forms. Each course limited to 12 participants.

We are also looking to get our Rifle Club established in September and would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in being involved, either as a participant or as a leader / instructor. To get the ball rolling we will be holding Club “taster” evenings which will be Thursdays from 7:00 to 8:00pm every Thursday in July. You will have the opportunity to talk to the PACCAR team about the different roles within the club set up, and also handle competition level rifles and equipment. Email office@paccarscoutcamp.org  for more details, or just turn up on Thursday evening.
