Slippery Falls Scout Ranch offers the best in merit badges, activities, competitions, and adventure. There is something for every new Boy Scout, experienced Boy Scouts, and Venturers.

Each camper will have plenty of opportunities to earn badges and awards, but Slippery Falls is also a great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
Every Scout wants a great summer camp experience, and the staff at Slippery Falls Scout Ranch is here to deliver that promise to you!

Cooking is an Eagle-required merit badge, and Fire Safety goes right along with it. Instruction time is during session 3, over lunch, and during session 4. Scouts will learn the cooking skills outlined in requirements 1-5 and prepare the camping meals for requirement 6.
