New SCout Program
This program has been specially designed to meet the needs of first year campers or Scouts who have not reached the rank of First Class. Scouts enrolled in this program will complete most of the requirements to achieve First Class upon return from camp. The “Trail to First Class” program emphasizes basic Scouting skills concentrating instruction in basic map and compass, woods tools, first aid, cooking, camping, pioneering and other “outdoor living” skills.
Our goal with this program is to ensure the Scout has most of the requirements to achieve First Class rank, to be able to advise you, the Scoutmaster, of exactly what the Boy Scout still requires upon return home, and to assist you in planning your Troop activities in the future based off of what we have completed for your Scouts at camp. Requirements
Requirements that may be completed at camp include:
Tenderfoot - 3a,3b,3c,3d,4a,4b,4c,4d,5a,5b,5c,6a,7a,8,
Second Class- 1b,2a,2b,2c,2d,2f,2g3a,3b,3c,3d,4,6a,6b,6c,8a,8b,9a,9b,
First Class, 3a,3b,3c,3d,4a,4b,5a,5b,5c,5d,7a,7b,7c,7d, 7e,
Each Scout will receive credit for the rank advancement requirement that he completes at camp. How much a Scou will complete is up to him, and it is very possible that different Scouts will complete different requirements and some may complete more than others. Many of the new requirements from Tenderfoot to First Class are better suited to be taught at the individuals troop level.
