Merit Badge Schedule for Summer Camp~~ Ideas for older scouts

Posted on Jun 4 2017 - 9:59am

Attached is the Merit Badge schedule for 2017 please look it over and make a list of the badges you'd like to take.

 Your list is due no later than June 6th; you can either reply to the email that Mr Ashley sent or turn it in to me after the Court of Honor on Tuesday.

 If this is your first year at Summer Camp Mr. Ashley would strongly suggest taking the Swimming merit badge and possibly Camping as well.

 Final Payments for Camp are (over) due. See the previous email for more information.

For Older Scouts:

Cachalot is offering some programs this year that might interest you; Please see the listing below.


Have you experienced all that Camp Cachalot has to offer?  Think again! The Voyager program is a week of camp designed for older scouts who have already done a majority of the camp activities. This program will not only teach scouts the ability to apply their skills to the challenges and activities but it will also provide them new and exciting activities that can be brought back to their troops. Scouts will document their week of camp through a “Survivor” style filming. Various activities that may be included include: advanced aquatics, advanced marksmanship programs, “Man-Craft”, Cycling outposts, Wilderness Survival treks and more. Participants will meet with their staff leader on Sunday to finalize the specific plans for each week based on the skills and interests of the scouts involved. Although the goal of the Voyager program doesn’t revolve around Merit Badges, Scouts will complete various tasks that can be utilized for merit badges that they may not already have earned. Advanced Sign up is Required. 

 SCUBA Experience

Each week on Thursday morning Scouts and leaders will have an opportunity to dive the beautiful 5 Mile Pond. This experience is offered through Bob’s Sea and Ski. Participants will be able to earn both the Snorkel BSA and Scuba BSA awards. Please note this is not the full Scuba Merit Badge nor is it a full certification course. 

 The experience costs $100 and must be signed up June 15th. First come, first serve although preference is given to older youth. Full certification courses are available with Bob Sea and Ski at a discount of $100 (the price paid for the experience) after summer camp. Some advance course work is required along with medical waiver and parent signature which will be forwarded to participants.

 Week 4 Scuba Registration    <==  Link for Scuba Sign Up and Payment. This is not done through the Troop but please let me know if you signed up

 COPE/High Adventure Week

Week 4 at Camp Cachalot this summer will allow scouts age 14+ and any Venturing Youth to come experience all that camp has to offer. The program will revolve around a COPE experience at both Cachalot and Norse. Participants will work through many team challenges throughout the week culminating with a trip to the High Course at Camp Norse including the Zipline, Confidence Pole, and so much more. 

 If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask Mr.Ashley
