Event Description

Troop 54 heads to Camp Carpenter this month for our first time, at least in recent years. We will stay in the Director Lodge, which has a capacity of 16. If we have more participants than that, some will tent camp near the cabin.

Activities while we are at Camp Carpenter include:

  • Visiting the Lawrence L. Lee Scouting Museum
  • Advancement
  • Sledding (providing there is snow)
  • Cooking Merit Badge

Scouting Heritage Merit Badge

Scouts who wish to complete a requirement toward Scouting Heritage Merit Badge can do so by visiting the museum:

4 C Visit an exhibit of Scouting memorabilia or a local museum with a Scouting history gallery, or (with your parent’s permission and counselor’s approval) visit with someone in your council who is recognized as a dedicated Scouting historian or memorabilia collector. Learn what you can about the history of Boy Scouting. Give a short report to your counselor on what you saw and learned.
