May 2019 Campout – The Survivorman Challenge!

Posted by Robert Holzhauser on March 9, 2019

Survivorman is coming May 10-12, 2019! 

Sign up for this camp-out to put your survival skills to the test and complete requirements for Wilderness Survival merit badge and compete with your patrol for the camp-out’s grand prize.

First year scouts will sleep in tents both nights but participate in a survival themed Level 1 treasure hunt on Saturday.

The Level 2 challenge encourages scouts to work together as a patrol to complete survival skills challenges and sleep in a shelter they construct in the wild for Saturday night.

Older scouts may participate in a Level 3 two-night survival challenge.  Adults are encouraged to sign-up to assist as referees and supervisors for our scouts as they trek through the wilderness of Peaceful Valley.
