2023 Turkey Camp
Turkey Camp 2023 - November 18-21
Merit Badge Selection will open on October 16th at 9 PM.
This will mark the eighth year of the East Texas Area Council’s Turkey Camp. Each year we take the feedback of our youth and adults to improve upon the previous years’ program. This program is driven by YOU, and we take your recommendations, needs, and comments seriously.
We are dedicated to delivering the promise of a quality outdoor program in a great setting provided by a staff of volunteers that is second to none. We do all of this in a safe, clean, and friendly camp atmosphere here at the beautiful George W. Pirtle Scout Reservation.
If you this will be your first year attending Turkey Camp, welcome! This event has the pace and energy of a Merit Badge Workshop fused with the outdoor experience of a traditional summer camp. Turkey Camp is 100% Volunteer based. There is not a traditional ‘Summer Camp Staff’ rather, Merit Badge classes are all taught by Unit Leaders who are attending camp. Everyone pitches in, and the atmosphere and energy reflect it.
The Turkey Camp program is designed to help each Scout in your unit to achieve the best possible experience. We strive to provide engaging programs for every Scout that comes to Turkey Camp, whether they be a first-year camper or the Scout that has been coming to camp for four or five years. We hope that this experience at Camp Pirtle will provide a lifetime of memories and the tools necessary for advancement to the next rank. If you have any questions as you plan your Turkey Camp experience, please drop us a line.
See you in November!
