Summer Camp 2017: Mountain Man

Summer Camp Materials

June 18 - 24  
     

The Mountain Man Program is designed for those Scouts who have either just crossed over from Webelos or have limited camping experience. As new rank requirements are adopted, the Mountain Man Program is constantly under review and revision to meet those requirements. In addition, feedback from Scoutmasters and other Scout leaders is utilized to retain those portions of the program that have proven to be effective and change those areas in need of improvement. Basic Scout skills for the inexperienced Scout form the basis of the program.

THE PROGRAM:
Mountain Man is a two-hour program held every morning all week. There are two sessions every day. The remainder of the day, scouts can work on merit badges that may interest them, or participate in troop activity periods.

Scouts are instructed in the following skill areas: wood tools, meal preparation and cooking, pioneering, knots, orienteering, nature, first aid, and outdoor citizenship. In addition, scouts can participate in a five- mile hike, which is held most evenings.

MOUNTAIN MAN T-SHIRTS:
All Mountain Main participants will receive a “Mountain Man” t-shirt to commemorate their week at
camp.

MOUNTAIN MAN ADULT SCOUT LEADER PARTICIPATION:
Since the Scouts participating in the Mountain Man Program are new and inexperienced, each unit must have at least one Adult Scout leader to promote and ensure success of their Scouts in the program. This is an excellent opportunity for adult leaders to become acquainted with their new Scouts and forge a bond with them that will last throughout the Scouts’ career and life.

Participants in the Mountain Man Program should bring following items for program purposes:

SCOUT SKILL INSTRUCTION:
  • Scout Handbook
