Trailblazer: Trail to First Class Adventure

Summer camp is usually the highlight of the Scouting year. It can be particularly exciting for first year Boy Scouts. It can also be a little intimidating whether it’s a Boy Scout who just bridged over from Webelos or a young Scout who isn’t ready for a week-long camp session. So this year at Camp Thunderbird, we are offering a shortened summer camp session designed specifically for the youngest of Boy Scouts (through 12 years old). 

Our Trailblazer Camp will give first year Boy Scouts the opportunity to work on rank advancement and merit badges!

Benefits for the parents and adults in your Troop are that this program is provisional. This means Camp Thunderbird provides the leadership and supervision. This is a great alternative for families who don’t have the ability to take the time off from work, wonder if the Scoutmaster can go, or need a less expensive option. And remember, adults are always welcome!

Camp Dates:

  • July 22-24, 2018

Fees:

  • Youth $150 / Adult $70 if registered by May 15th, 2018
  • Youth $160 / Adult $80 if registered after May 15th, 2018

Our Webelos-only 4-day session will include a family BBQ.

Each Cub Scout (including Tigers) and Webelos ranks will have two pre-selected achievement classes. Each Scout will have the opportunity to choose their elective(s) class when they register for camp.
