Why: Merit Badges, Fun Activities & Adventure, Troop Fellowship
Cost: Approximately $500 for scouts and $200 for adults. First payment for Scouts is $200, and $100 for adults, due April 15th.

We have officially secured a summer camp reservation at Bear Creek Scout Reservation this summer.  It is exciting to be confident our scouts will have an opportunity to attend a normal summer camp after missing it in 2020.  Please make sure you register your scout as soon as possible as space is limited and we are fast approaching dates for merit badge sign up, payments, etc.  

Here is a merit badge schedule for you to start thinking about your selections.   A sign up will be sent soon and will be due by April 28th!

Ranger Program – for our new/younger scouts.  Bear Creek’s Ranger program is an exciting introduction to Scouting for all who have not completed the requirements for First Class rank.  Scouts will work on advancements in Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class.  You cannot beat this opportunity for new scouts.  Along with completing a large number of rank advancement requirements, Rangers are given the opportunity to complete the swimming merit badge and may choose between art, leatherwork, pottery or first aid. Ranger Outpost on Thursday evening takes the Rangers to the rustic portion of the camp and allows our staff an opportunity to share campfire stories while the Rangers earn their Firem’n Chit card.

For our older scouts (13 or 14 years old or older), they will be able to pick from many merit badges plus other programs/activities: 

  • Hunter Education
  • Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience (C.O.P.E)
  • Mountain Biking / BMX
  • BSA Lifeguard Certification
  • Cowboy Action - a fun, safe introduction to cowboy action shooting with pistols, rifles, and shotguns. While attending camp this summer, scouts over the age of 14 can take part in a special shooting experience with opportunities to shoot .22 caliber pistols, .22 caliber lever action rifles, and 12 or 20 gauge shotguns at reactive targets
  • Guad Squad - weeklong kayak adventure – participants will spend Monday honing their kayaking skills and will take off down the river Tuesday morning. They’ll return to camp each afternoon and plan the next day’s excursion. Activities on Friday will include zipping, playing on the climbing wall, water sliding 

This year’s fees will be $500 for youth and $200 for adults.  Our budget includes transportation costs and final payment may be adjusted lower depending on final transportation logistics.  First payment will be due by April 15th
