Hey Scouts, you can now choose and sign up for merit badges to be taught during the Scouts BSA Specialty Week, July 17 – 23 at Camp Snyder!
You can pick from over 50 merit badges, including Eagle-required, aquatics, shooting sports, scout skills, the outdoors, STEM and many more. And, it’s not often that you can take NEAT merit badges like Archaeology, Game Design, Moviemaking, Nuclear Science, Photography, Radio, Robotics and Woodwork. As an added benefit, most merit badges will be taught by adult volunteers who are experts in their field.
For new Scouts, you can learn skills for rank advancement in the Green Bar Bill Patrol program. This first-year camper program, named for legendary BSA pioneer William “Green Bar Bill” Hillcourt, uses the patrol method to learn the traditional outdoor skills Scouts need to earn Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First-Class Scout ranks. In additional to rank requirements, Scouts will also earn the Totin’ Chip and Firem’m Chit qualifications, as well as First Aid and Pioneering merit badges. Overnight camping Scouts will also have an opportunity to earn Swimming merit badge if they choose. WOW! Rank advancement skills AND merit badges all in one program!
Plus, ALL Scouts can join in the other FUN camp activities at the swimming pool, rifle and archery ranges, boating lake, climbing tower, campfires and much more. After all, it is summer camp!
Scouts can participate as day-campers, unit overnight campers or as individual overnight campers in provisional units with volunteer adult Scoutmasters.
