Let's get those younger Scouts started on the right foot. The Trailblazer Tenderfoot progam will teach Scouts the very basics of Scout skills while they have a great time with some fun activities and games. Scouts should complete requirements 10b (30-day goal of physical fitness tests), 14 (Scoutmaster conference), and 15 (Board of Review) after camp, as they will not be met during the week.
Time to take the next step on the trail to Eagle. The Second Class program begins to focus on some of the more advanced outdoor skill lessons. Scouts should complete requirement #2a (five patrol or troop activities, including overnight camping) and requirement #8 (participation in a dangers of drug and alcohol program) prior to or after camp. Requirements #10 (Scoutmaster conference) and #11 (Board of Review) should be completed after camp.
When a Scout reaches First Class, he is ready to begin showing his leadership skills. The First Class program teaches Scouts to become self-reliant in the outdoors and a true asset on camping trips. Scouts should complete requirement #3 (ten patrol or troop activities, including overnight camping), requirements 4a-e (outdoor cooking requirements) prior to or after camp. Requirements #11 (Scoutmaster conference) and #12 (Board of Review) should be completed after camp.
