New at Boy Scout Summer Camp
February 14, 2017
Summer Camp 2017 is just around the corner. In addition to the shooting, aquatic, and high adventure activities Scouts come to expect each year, the Greater St. Louis Area Council has several new features to unveil this summer.
- 3 new merit badges: sustainability, movie making, and search & rescue
- Keith Davidson Climbing Complex at Camp Lewallen: 40-foot tower with traverse wall and climbing net
- Counselor In Training program: allows youth ages 14-15 to serve as a camp counselor for three weeks to get the camp staff experience
- Provisional Camp weeks 2-7: youth who can’t attend summer camp with their troop can sign up with a provisional troop where leadership is provided and Scouts can sign up individually
