Boy Scout Merit Badges

We are proud to be able to offer merit badges for our campers who are current boy scouts and would like to complete the requirements. We have completed many hundreds of merit badges for Boy Scouts over the year’s.  Below is a list of the following merit badges that a camper may earn while attending summer camp here.  Completion will depend on the length of the session as well as the involvement and interest of the camper.  During the three and four week it should be fairly easy to get some of these merit badges complete.

Merit Badges available:

  • Archery
  • Art
  • Basketry
  • Canoeing
  • Climbing
  • Horsemanship
  • Fishing
  • Lifesaving*
  • Pottery
  • Small Boat Sailing
  • Swimming*
  • Whitewater
  • Sculpture
  • Kayaking*
  • Wilderness Survival
  • Cycling

We will make a note of scouts who are interested on the first day of camp.  It is also the responsibility of the camper to talk with the activity area concerned at the beginning of the session in order to work on these merit badges. Simply signing up for an activity is not adequate, we have to know that your son wants to work on a merit badge.  Keep in mind, the length of the session may determine whether he may be able to complete the merit badge along with the rest of the camp schedule.

We have merit badge counselors on staff who are affiliated with local troops that will be able to sign off and assist your camper with the necessary paperwork involved for the merit badge requirements.

Below is a printable sheet you can share with your local troop leader with the details. Please be sure your son has his  Scout Master’s approval to work on merit badges.
