Open Program

Using our flexible program schedule, Scouts can participate in any number of merit badges and exciting camp programs. While at camp, not all campers are required to participate in the same activities as others. Each camper can spend his time accomplishing tasks that will help him advance in rank. Campers can work on merit badges and requirements of any program area, at almost any time, on any day of the week.

CFR Labs

If you love science, this is the place for you. CFR labs is the home to our science and technology program. Fourteen STEM merit badges are taught here with only four being scheduled in a closed program format. It is one of our more popular areas and offers many merit badges that are not usually offered in a camp setting! It is strongly recommended that Scouts have their Cyber Chip prior to camp to fully enjoy CFR Labs.

New in 2018:

  • Mountain Biking
  • Offsite Canoe Trek

Brownsea Program

The Brownsea Island Adventure is a specialized program for scouts who are in their first year of scouting, often having just crossed over from Cub Scouting, though first year scouts of all ages are encouraged to participate in the program.

The program is built around the idea that rather than focusing on just completing requirements, a scout should be well trained in their skills, and the completion of rant requirements is only part of the adventure.  At the end of the week, hard-working Brownsea scouts will walk away with a strong foundation in basic scouting skills, several requirements from Tenderfoot to First Class, and a merit badge of two to along with it.


Natural Rock Rapelling
