Summer CAMP Information
Merit Badge Offering:
Camp Post prides itself on the adventurous nature of its merit badges. Scouts will have the chance to earn Horsemanship, Shotgun, Rifle, Archery, Swimming, Canoeing and more. Also, Eagle Required Merit Badges such as First Aid are offered. See our Leader's Guide for a full List.
3 Day Schedule:
To allow Scouts to have a great experience at camp, while not taking up too much of their time, we have a shortened schedule at Camp Post. Merit badges will either be two half day sessions or one full day session. In the evening, 'lighter' merit badges such as Finger Printing and Basketry will be offered. This allows Scouts to have the ability to earn up to 5 merit badges in 3 days!
To allow Scouts a full experience with Canoeing, those who choose to canoe will make a day trip to Lake Alan Henry. This will allow Scouts to experience canoeing on open water! So, if you have Scouts who plan to earn this merit badge, please arrange for transportation to the Lake that day.
We do allow Scouts to sign up individually for Camp Post. We will pair them into a Troop in attendance, and allow them to have a great camp experience without their troop.
