1st Year Campers
You will be signing up for Pathfinder Advancement program (click here to download the Pathfinder Program sheet) which is an
important part of our camp program. It allows scouts the opportunity to advance through most requirements for the Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class ranks; as well as earn Indian Lore, Nature, and Mammal Study Merit Badges. It is our recommendation that all first year Scouts participate in the Pathfinder Program.
