The A.C.E. program offers Scouts (14+) who have been to camp for a few years the opportunity to enjoy some of the most exciting activities in and around Camp Friedlander while maintaining time to work on advancement and merit badges.

A.C.E. participants will spend a half-day each day participating in a variety of activities that may include mountain boarding, biking the Little
Miami Bike Trail, paddle boarding or blobbing on the lake, and going tubing on the river. There is also an option for an overnight experience for one night. Participants should bring gear for a typical backpacking overnight.

A.C.E. Scouts must be 14 years of age or older, be classified as swimmers and complete the “Consent/Hold Harmless Form”
found in the online forms section on the Camp Forms page. 

As a group, Scouts can choose to participate in:

  • COPE activities 
  • River Tubing
  • Wilderness Hike
  • Wilderness Overnight
  • Bike Trop
  • Climbing
  • Mountain Boarding
  • Paddle Boarding
  • Slingshots or Archery



Scouts 14 and older who may have received their Eagle, or are looking for something other than Merit Badges to participate in. 
Registration for A.C.E. is just like you would register for a Merit Badge. For information on how to select merit badges for Youth already registered in a unit registration or Individual Participants, see the Registration System Walk-through slides or the Registration Demo video.
