First-year camper program
In the Frontiersman program, Scouts will cover many requirements from Tenderfoot through First Class ranks. They will be learning the basic Scout skills or refining skills that they already know. Scouts will be covering requirements for knots, lashings, woods tool use and care, swimming, lifesaving, orienteering, plant and animal identification, fire building and first aid. Each Scout will need a swimsuit, towel, personal first aid kit and their Boy Scout handbook.
Scouts in the Frontiersman program will become a member of a provisional patrol for the week and will have the full attention of experienced staff mentors. This program is a great introduction to summer camp and is highly recommended for all first-year campers.
This program will take either an entire morning or an entire afternoon. Scouts may enroll in one, two, or possibly three other merit badge sessions appropriate to the level of challenge they can handle.
