Leader Programs

Adult leaders allow camp to happen by providing leadership and guidance to Scouts throughout the week.  But that doesn't mean they can't have fun too!  There is a full schedule of leader-only activities and trainings that will help enhance their experience, share fellowship with other Scouters, and offer training in a variety of areas.

William D. Boyce Award

William D. Boyce founded the BSA to turn boys into strong young men.  Adults at camp are keeping this mission alive today and can earn the William D. Boyce Award by encouraging strong leadership in their Scouts, participating in program areas and taking part in training while at camp.  See the Camp Commissioner for more information.

The Golden Spoon

One of the great benefits of being a Scouter is all the great food around the campfire.  Each troop is encouraged to submit their best outdoor cooking dish of their choosing for the Golden Spoon competition.  Do you have a troop favorite dish that you think is the best around?  Then gather your ingredients, get the fire going, and cook up a winner to be judged by the camp staff.  One troop will be named the winner of the Golden Spoon award, to be presented at the closing campfire.  Of course, in this activity, everyone is a winner, because we all get to eat.

Trainings

A variety of trainings are available for leaders during the week.  During your week of camp is a great time to get trained, because you're already there!

Top Shot Award

If you fancy yourself as a marksman, consider competing for the Top Shot Award.

This will be presented each week to the adult leader who has the highest combined score at the archery (five arrows), shotgun (five shots) and rifle (20 shots) ranges.  All competition will be held during open program time.  Scorecards can be purchased at the trading post for $5.00 and must be completed and submitted to the Shooting Sports Director by 5:00 pm Friday.  All proceeds will be used to support our youth shooting programs.
