LOCATION: 4500 S Bullet Prairie Rd, Tishomingo, OK 73460, USA
MERIT BADGES: Scouts should start determining which merit badges they want as some of them will fill up quickly. Highly suggest new scouts to select easier ones such as basketry, art, etc. If a scout doesn’t have First Aid, they should select that as it is a requirement to do many other merit badges and for safety in the troop all scouts should have that training.
The list of available merit badges can be found in the Leaders Guide
Experiencing camp through merit badges is the core of the summer camp program for Scouts. Merit badge sessions are offered by the program staff throughout each day, mostly during six scheduled session times. A few merit badges have some sessions in the early morning, such as fishing, and in the evening, such as astronomy. Scouts may take field trips while working on Animal Science, Communication, Citizenship in the Nation, and Indian Lore. Some merit badges and programs require Scouts to attend two or three sessions each day. Scouts will be able to complete many merit badges at camp. Some merit badges have requirements that should be completed prior to camp, and some requirements may only be completed outside of camp. Scouts must demonstrate completion of each requirement before it is approved by a counselor. Merit badges and programs are run through various Program Areas at Kerr Scout Ranch at Slippery Falls. This is to ensure qualified instruction by knowledgeable counselors and a great experience by Scouts in each area.
