Camp Merz Scouts BSA 2024

Event Details

WELCOME TO CAMP MERZ 2024!

UPDATE: Merit Badge Registration will open on 4/13 at 9am!!

 

Located on the shores of beautiful Lake Chautauqua in Mayville, New York, Camp Merz has been a beloved Scout camp for 90 years.

Scouts BSA Summer Camp Programs:

  • Extensive Merit Badge Selection: With over 50 Merit Badges to choose from, Scouts can develop valuable skills and expand their horizons.
  • Experienced Staff: Our seasoned and dedicated staff, many with 10+ years of service, ensure a safe and enriching Scouting experience.
  • Private Waterfront: Camp Merz features an impressive 1500 feet of private waterfront along the picturesque 19-mile-long Chautauqua Lake, perfect for water-based activities and adventures, we are known for our Sailing, Canoeing, and Paddleboard as well as our Swim program. 
  • 350-Acre Hardwood Forest: Nestled within a sprawling hardwood forest, our camp provides a natural backdrop for Scouting adventures. Most wooded campsites have pavilions and electric hookups.

Program Highlights:

  • "Polaris" First Year Program designed for new and recently crossed over scouts. 
  • Rifle & Shotgun Range with BSA Certified Rangemaster. 
  • Trail to Eagle Center - Scouts can earn some of those hard to get Eagle Required Merit Badges. 
  • Nature and Handicraft Programs - Everything from Leathercraft and Basketry to Inventing and Pottery!
  • "Rangercraft" - Scouts learn practical skills through Trade Merit Badges like Automotive Repair, Safety, Plumbing, and more...
  • Technology Center - Game Design, Digital Technology, and more make this a favorite spot for our Scouts!

We run a full host of camp-wide activies throughout the week, including "Cantina Night" with a DJ and Karaoke, our World Famous Water Carnival, and more fun around every corner. 

Last but not least - We are KNOWN for our food! Our dining hall provides delicious, hearty, filling meals for our Scouts & Leaders, and we can make accomodations for most food allergies and dietary requirements with proper notice. 

We can't wait to see you at Camp!
