1st Year Campers  ***Updated

New this year, the Pathfinder program has changed from a single, full day session to two half day sessions (2 hours). This allows our first year scouts to experience the merit badge classes the same as the older scouts.  With this change, we will continue to register our first year scouts for the Pathfinder program (preferably in the morning session if not closed out) but they will need to choose a few other merit badges from the schedule table below. 

You will be signed up for the Pathfinder Advancement program which is an important part of our camp program. It allows new scouts the opportunity to advance through most requirements for the Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class ranks; as well as earn a few other Merit Badges.

It is our recommendation that all first year Scouts participate in the Pathfinder Program. The advancement opportunities and the exposure to all areas of the camp will help insure that these campers have a positive experience.

All 1st year campers need to download the worksheets below, complete any yellow highlighted requirements and have them signed off by any Leader prior to attending camp.  You will need bring these to the Pathfinder area when they begin your session that week:

If you have any questions or problems, please contact Mr. Holland or Mr. Liu via email or speak with them at a Scout Meeting.

Merit Badge Sign-up will begin as soon as you have selected your Merit Badges, so please fill out your Merit Badge Selection form and get it in to Mr. Holland or Mr. Liu. Then print out the advance preparation worksheets, if the Merit Badge requires advance work.
