What if your Scouts could customize their summer camp experience and level up their skills while earning merit badges and rank advancement that will impact their Scouting journey? At Camp McKee, Scouts and units can choose which programs and activities to participate in, based on their unique interests and advancement needs.
From the Pioneer program and a robust merit badge program to evening activities that provide additional opportunities for merit badge completion and camp-wide fun, your unit will have dozens of ways to make your camp experience a week to remember. In particular, Camp McKee offers a top-tier shooting sports program with experienced instructors who are committed to safety and a mountain biking program that utilizes our new biking trails. And the camp program isn’t just for youth—adults and older Scouts will have opportunities to participate and get advanced training/certification as well.
Full details on the 2024 camp program will be published in Spring 2024, prior to the opening of program registration. In the meantime, check out this page to learn more about what your unit could experience at Camp McKee. We’ll add more information here as it becomes available.
Pioneer First Year Camper Program
New Scouts can get a head start on their Scouting journey with the Pioneer Scout program, which allows them to customize how many rank skills they take and choose merit badges from a list of classes set aside especially for them. Summer camp makes a huge impact on a new Scout, and the Pioneer staff work hard to ensure it’s a positive experience.
Merit Badge Program
Experienced Scouts can customize their camp adventure by choosing up to six merit badges in a wide range of areas, from Aquatics to STEM to Outdoor Skills. Their options include many Eagle-required merit badges, opportunities like our top-tier Shooting Sports program, and uncommon merit badge offerings that rotate every year.
Evening & Other Program
In addition to the Pioneer and merit badge programs, Scouts have many other program opportunities in the evenings, including games, trainings, time to work with staff on merit badges, OA activities, service projects, troop swimming and boating, and more.
