Merit Badge Days

Merit Badge Days are an opportunity for Scouts in troops can participant in one-day merit badge classes held at Tellepsen Scout Camp on Saturdays and Sundays in July and August.

Scouting at Home

Scouting at Home is an opportunity for youth members to stay engaged in Scouting. These out-of-the-box, in-home activities are centered around providing advancement-related content to help keep kids safe, engaged and to help them make the best of home time.

Summer Camp

  • Summer Camp is typically held at Camp Strake, however due to the COVID-19 pandemic summer camp 2020 has been cancelled.
  • Camp Staff serve Scouting by being a staff member at one of the council's camps.

Winter Camp

Winter Camp is held each year from December 26-31 and is a wonderful opportunity for troops to camp and for Scouts to earn merit badges. Merit badge classes are taught by Scouters with real-life experiences in the field. 

Weekend Camping

Weekend camping is a great opportunity for Scouts to practice their skills and have a great time in the outdoors. Troops and crews can camp at council camps.
