What is Summer Camp?
Summer camp is a week long scouting experience where Boy Scouts can earn several merit badges of their choice while camping with their friends in their Troop. This gives the Scouts the chance to take part in activities that they might normally have trouble finding such as climbing courses, archery, or even just learning to swim in the camp lake. At the same time, this gives them a chance to break away from the modern tech-obsessed world to enjoy the timeless experience of living on the edge of the wilderness (even if we do make sure to feed them so they don’t have to suffer their own cooking). Boy Scout summer camp is the experience every Scouter should enjoy as they move forward in the program.
