The Marksman – Archery and Shooting Sports Contingent

The Marksman program track focuses on skill development and competency in rifle, pistol, shotgun and archery.

Site in your target, take a deep breath and fire. Learn a new appreciation of the precision and accuracy necessary to elevate your marksmanship skills. Whether at the shooting or archery range, the discipline necessary to hit your targets, the responsibility that comes with the sport, are skills you can apply throughout the rest of your life.

The Program

This is a seven-day/six night program running Sunday to Saturday. It consists of three days of shooting and archery activities, which may include trap, five-stand, steel challenge, pistol, long distance rifle,3D archery, long distance archery and sporting arrows.

As a bonus, each member of your crew will also be able to select three additional elective activities at other Summit adventure venues. A half-day service project and a ride on the Big Zip – our 3⁄4 mile zip line – round out your week.

Each night (Monday-Friday), we will open the Scott Summit Center for activities, fun and socializing. The Scout Summit Center incorporates small versions of our adventure sports venues.
