Camp Information: See the camp website www.gotowebster.org for more information pertaining to summer camp, and www.meritbadge.org for descriptions and requirements for all the merit badges offered. Tip for success: once merit badge decisions are made, reserve the merit badge pamphlets with the Troop Librarian or purchase them at the Scout Store. Read the requirements before going to camp and check for pre-requisites listed on camp information (see Merit Badge Program & Scoville Scale and Merit Badge Prerequisites below).

The troop offers the convenience of having an RN review health forms prior to camp, and the health forms are delivered to JNW the week prior to the troop arriving. This process saves everyone a long wait in line and potential of your son being turned away from camp the first day! Please note the deadlines and policies.
First Class Path: This is a specialty program recommended for scouts who are attending JNW Boy Scout Camp for the first time (typically scouts who have just crossed over from the Pack). See the description (attached) for the scout skills and badge focus provided.
Trail to Eagle: Trail to Eagle week is a specialty camp for scouts closer to Eagle rank. It's offered at JNW the week of 6/25-6/30. Trail to Eagle (T2E) scouts tent in a campsite with other scouts in the program. Scouts have access to work on several more Eagle-required badges, and can meet with advisors to discuss Eagle projects and other details. There is a $100 discount for attending a second week.
Years of experience have proven that it is crucial that we maintain a 1 adult: 5 scouts ratio for a positive, safe and productive camp experience. We estimate approximately 15 scouts attending camp this year, which means we need at least 3 adults at camp at all times. Please consider volunteering a day, night or more to support our scouts – and have a great time enjoying summer and the outdoors!
The troop covers the camp cost of adult volunteers, but please note that health forms are required for any adult staying overnight. As with the campers, the physician signature on the forms must be dated after 7/10/15. If you are able to help, or have questions about volunteering, please see Mike or Danielle. Thank you!
Questions: If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
