Boy Scout Specialty Camps
Many Scouts first experience summer camp with their Troop. Joining your Troop for summer camp is a great time and every Scout should try to camp with his Troop. There are, however, additional camping opportunities offered at Baiting Hollow to help a Scout round out his camping experience or help advance in rank.
Trail to Eagle Camp[ SIGN UP! ]
Our most popular specialty camp, Trail to Eagle Camp helps motivated Scouts walk down the trail to the Eagle Scout rank. Programs designed to help Scouts achieve required merit badges are in place and District Advancement Chairpersons are often in attendance to provide counseling on time management, Eagle Scout projects, and the paperwork required for the Eagle rank. This camp is not intended for first or second year campers.
Bridge Camp[ SIGN UP! ]
Bridge camp is a program for Scouts who have just bridged over from Webelos. During the day the Scout will be involved with our Brownsea "first year camper program". At night he will be in a campsite with other Scouts his age. He will have a chance to work on Totin' Chip, Fireman Chit, Baiting Hollow Naturalist and participate in all of the other camp programs. Additionally, he will have the opportunity to work on his first merit badge.
Counselor-in-Training (CIT)[ SIGN UP! ]
A Scout may enroll in the CIT program if he is at least 14 years old by July 1, 2015. Half the day is spent working next to experienced staff members to gain a hands-on look at camp programs. The second half of the day is spent on individual advancement and achievements including an opportunity to work on merit badges. Individuals who graduate from the CIT program have the opportunity to be considered for placement as a member of our Junior Staff Intern Program. If selected, Scouts can continue their training at no cost and spend the remainder of the summer working with our camp staff.
