What is Klondike Winter Camp
The Klondike Winter Camp is held December 27-30 annually at Camp Barstow. This Winter Camp is held just after the Christmas holidays. A volunteer camp staff provides program help, guidance, and supervision in the area of Scout-craft, Nature, Arts, and Heritage as well as many other specialty merit badges. These may include merit badges that are required for the Eagle Scout rank.
Scouts sign-up for Merit Badges in SETs such as Fire Safety and Traffic Safety or Orienteering and Geocaching. They will stay in that SET for the day to complete work in both badges in that SET. Some merit badges will have prerequisites to be completed before attending.
What will we do:
*Provide advancement opportunities for Scouts
*Familiarize youth with the Scouting program through the outdoor experience
*Stimulate Troop programming before, during, and after attending camp
*Make friends and have FUN
*Share ideas and enjoy fellowship
*Camp-wide campfires and competition
*Adult service project available (please contact Dennis Ely for more info.)
Who can attend:
Any registered Scouts BSA youth may attend. Registered leaders and parents may attend if they have current Youth Protection Training. Troops should make sure that all Scouts attending have adequate adult supervision at all times. Multi troops may pool their resources in order to provide an adequate number of Scouts and adult leaders to form a unit.
Cost to attend:
Cost to attend is $85.00 per Scout and $60.00 per adult. There is an additional fee for Scouts who sign-up for Cooking ($10.00) or Rifle ($20.00) or Shotgun ($30.00) Merit Badges.
