The 30-minute training for each discipline will be offered on multiple dates -see information at bottom of this page. 

The 30-minute trainings can be offered by a certified NRA rifle, shotgun and pistol instructor, and Archery Level One Coach (or higher), and we can send them the materials to do the trainings. Email

No siblings or Cub Scouts allowed at this event.

Our shooting programs are valuable resources for helping young people develop self-confidence, personal discipline, responsibility, teamwork, self-esteem, and sportsmanship. The discipline and self-control required for responsible firearms use carry over into many other aspects of life.

Questions or if you know of a vendor who would like to donate prizes or supplies, please contact the registrar Diane Weiss 209-327-4752 or email

Flyer to share with your units ---

All participants must have training before participating on the rifle, shotgun, pistol for adults and Venturer's, and archery ranges. GEC requires each person to attend a 30-minute briefing for each of these disciplines.


If you already have your white card completed for each of the disciplines, bring it with you for the instructors to see at their ranges.


If your scout has their archery, rifle, or shotgun merit badges then they don’t need to attend these classes, just bring their blue cards/proof of completion with them on Friday September 10 and we will sign off a white training card for them at check-in. 


If you don't have all four disciplines (i.e. archery, shotgun, rifle, and pistol for Venture Scouts) signed off on your white card (bring it with you to the training classes offered). You will need to attend the entire class, as we can’t tell you what time a specific discipline will be taught during the class (except the pistol will be taught last, so those who can’t take the pistol class will be able to leave) The review will be good for you. 


Watch your emails and council website for dates to be arranged for the 30-minute trainings in July and August.  


Best Regards,
