Event Details

Scouts BSA 2020 Summer Experience

Hosted and Facilitated from The Banks of Lake Monroe

By the Crossroads of America Council

 

We’re in this together! Though we may be apart, we are proud to present a summer experience as we never have before. Continue your Scouting journey with us through advancement opportunities, summer camp traditions, merit badge programs, challenges, experiments, adventures, and so much more! Our intrepid team of facilitators and educators deliver content and instruct from Ransburg Scout Reservation outside of Bloomington, IN through a variety of formats, platforms and media. 

 

What To Expect 

Whether you’ve just crossed over and your summer goal is to learn the skills needed to succeed on your trail to First Class, or you’re a seasoned Scout whose goal is to make progress towards a new skill or merit badge, we’re here to support you. Your experience will be a combination of merit badges, activities, skill instruction, work towards rank requirements, and numerous other interactive and engaging experiences. Scouts will be able to sign-up for merit badges and activities they are interested in participating in during their week.

For us, this is a chance to teach, mentor, guide, and enable our Scouts in ways perhaps we’ve never considered. Together, our team of summer camp staff will bring you high quality and dynamic content developed specifically for this program. See the list of Frequently Asked Questions (below) for more about the weekly program.

Most importantly, we believe the foundational values found in the Scout Oath and Law are more important during this time than ever before. Together we’ll keep the fire of Scouting burning bright in the best ways we can: in our hearts, our minds, our backyards, our kitchens, our neighborhoods, and through fellowship with fellow Scouts. We’ll also stay active and have a ton of fun, which is essential to good Scouting.
