Calling All Scouts!

Tuscarora Council and Cape Fear Council have partnered to build a program that is both safe for our Scouts to attend while still exciting and rooted in the o utdoor experience at the heart of the Scouting program.

Please don't delay... REGISTER TODAY If you plan to attend the Virtual Camp and In-Camp Experience at Camp Bowers we need you to REGISTER NOW . The last day to register is Thursday July 16.

Merit badge class sizes will have caps ( Classes will have attendee limits based on the content taught) and registrations are first come first serve. Virtual week will allow Scouts to register for up to 4 separate merit badges with 24 unique merit badge offerings. We will be using a Zoom platform to conduct our virtual merit badge sessions. There may be requirements that we cannot complete virtually and could be assigned outside of the classroom.

Scouts will have the opportunity to attend Camp Bowers on the Saturday of their registered session. Our staff will have several program areas open, including waterfront, shooting sports, ecology, handicraft and zip lining, where scouts can finish up requirements that couldn’t be completed virtually as well as work on some additional one-day merit badges and activities.

Check out our Parent’s Guide for the list of merit badges offered and a list of In-Camp Activities and REGISTER TODAY
