Registration: Registration is available online only at the following link:

Scouts participating in Tkahsaha will function as members of a provisional Troop and become part of a patrol during program time. They will camp as patrols with the provisional Troop, our provisional Scoutmasters, and participate in all Troop and program activities. This program will include multiple rank advancement requirements (full list at this link on page 2), completion of the Firem'n Chit , completion of the Totin’ Chip , the Swimming Merit Badge , (or instructional swim) and the First Aid Merit Badge .

Tkahsaha ”— meaning New Beginnings — is a program for brand new Scouts that have just moved up from Webelos or those joining the Troop right before summer camp. It is not intended for Scouts who have been a member of the Troop for some time and simply making their first trip to camp. 

The purpose of the program is to help new Scouts become comfortable with Scouting methods and give them an understanding of how Scouting skills are learned and adapted for a lifetime. 

During this 2-Weekend program, Scouts will work in patrols and be introduced to many exciting areas including: hiking, wood tools, using a knife and ax, camping, fire building, campsite selection and set-up, how to pack a backpack and use of camping gear, ropes, knots, compass, and cooking. Scouts will also participate in patrol competitions where they can apply the skills they have learned. 

Each Scout in the program will need to bring their own tent, a mess kit, small daypack, canteen, poncho, compass, Scout handbook and pocketknife , which they will learn to use properly. ( A complete packing list is available on the event registration site. )
