We have partnered with the Boy Scouts of America and the American Heritage Girls to teach scouts about firearms and firearms safety. Along with our high school program, our partnership with local scouting organizations is instrumental in Preserving our Freedom by Promoting the Safe Use of Firearms.
American Heritage Girls
The American Heritage Girls’ shooting badge requires participants to learn the proper, safe procedures in using a gun. The X Count’s AHG clinic lasts a day in which girls participate in various activities to fulfill the multiple requirements of their shooting badge. Activities that we’ve previously included are a team-building escape room, a gun safety education program with the NRA’s Eddie Eagle, and hands-on experience in cleaning and shooting rifles. Girls leave with a strong foundation of gun safety knowledge and all of the requirements necessary to earn their shooting badge.
Boy Scouts of America
The Boy Scouts of America and The X Count work together to help young men fulfill the requirements for their shooting merit badge. Like the AHG, the clinics cover all requirements necessary for the participating scouts to earn their merit badges. We also work with local Boy Scouts to help them on their journey to their Eagle Scout award. Many of our young men have earned this high honor, and we hope to continue that in the coming years.
