At Beech Paradise Ranch, we welcome youth students who are interested in shooting. However, we require that parents or guardians accompany all students under the age of 15 at all times. This is to ensure everyone’s safety and provide a comfortable environment for learning. Under the age of 15 we evaluate each youth shooter on a case-by-case basis. Our goal is to create a safe and enjoyable experience for all our visitors, regardless of age.
