  • The most heavily attended station will be KNOTS AND LASHINGS, which will cover two Tenderfoot requirements and four First Class requirements.
     
  • The HIKE... More Than Just a Hike... We will have one hike which leaves in the morning and continues into the early afternoon.                      Click HERE for more information.

  • The FIRST AID station will cover two Tenderfoot requirements, three Second Class requirements and three First Class requirements. 
     
  • The FLAG FOLDING/RAISING station, which also including a visit with a community leader, will see scouts complete all or some of the two Tenderfoot requirements and one First Class requirement. 
     
  • At the MISCELLANEOUS station scouts need to identify 10 kinds of wild animals. For scouts who prefer to identify 10 kinds of plants, we will take them on a nature hike so they can complete those requirements. 
  • At TRAILHEAD SWIM, we will travel to Prewett Family Water Park from the Bus Stop. Trailhead swim is not an instructional program but will verify your ability to swim. 
  • An adult troop leader must accompany all scouts working on swimming tests for Second or First class at the swimming pool.

  • We will hold two sessions in the morning and the afternoon dealing with KNIVES AND AXES, where the scouts can earn their Totin' Chip cards.
  • Scoutmasters are requested to be available for Scoutmaster’s conferences for his Scouts either during the camp or as soon as possible after camp.
