The Scouts BSA Camping Committee is excited to bring back the "block method" of programming and "Build Your Own Adventure Wednesdays" for summer camp 2022.  After reviewing the feedback from last year, the committee made various tweaks to the program and think this year is going to be a great experience for both Scouts and adults.

Your Week At Cuyuna

Units should plan to arrive at Cuyuna Scout Camp between 1:30-4:30pm on Sunday of their reserved week.  Please eat before arriving.  Once checked in you will have time set up your campsite, have medical checks and swim checks.  A camp wide meal will be served at 6pm followed by an opening campfire program.  Following the campfire, join in the ice cream social at the Eagle Trail.  Taps will be at 11pm.  The excitement and activities of camp can take a physical toll on Scouts and leaders.  Cuyuna Staff insists on quiet time between taps and reveille.  Scouts should get a minimum of eight hours of sleep each night.

Monday morning 7am begins your week of "block method" programming.  Please remember that camp is not a Merit Badge Midway.  Although merit badges are an important part of the program, Scouts should have time to enjoy other aspects of camp as well.  It is recommended that no more than 4 merit badges for any Scout and only 1 merit badge for Scouts participating in Eagle Trail.  One of the tweaks from the Camping Committee is to break full day merit badges into at least 2 session of different days.  If more than one part to a merit badge is listed, the Scout must take all parts in order to complete the merit badge.
