Summer Camp

Event Description This is a highlight in every Scouts year. Summer camp is a week-long event during which scouts work on various scout-related activities and requirements.  Examples include advancement requirements, merit badges, and their Totin' Chit.  Parents usually get to visit mid-week.

First-year Boy Scouts are highly encouraged to attend the first summer camp after crossing over from Cub Scouts.  This reinforces the new bond they've made with Troop 71.

The Troop selects a location and reservations are made. The camp site provides a schedule of available classes -- advancement, merit badge, etc. The Scouts fill out individual registration forms. They choose the classes they’d like to attend and, if it is for a merit badge, fill out a "blue card." several alternatives. Troop leaders screen these selections to ensure the Scouts have all the prerequisite training for the classes they chose.
