Thunder Ridge Scout Camp FAQ's

 

1. What we offer.

     Summer Camps:

  • Summer Camp: Thunder Ridge utilizes the Adventure Track system to deliver high-quality program to the participants at camp. Adventure Tracks are a tactile, experience-based method of learning and achieving merit badges and rank advancement skills. Each track is customizable with a morning and afternoon session. Camp will not only offer specific merit badge instruction, but also will engage the participants in other camp program features such as C.O.P.E. (high ropes course and leadership games), skills, games and fun activities. Scouts will have the opportunity to exercise leadership and teaching skills along the path of track adventures. Leaders will also have the option to attend Leader-Specific Training and Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills.
