PROGRAM FEATURES & PHILOSOPHY
Camp Alexander recommends every boy should be signed up for a merit badge class or acvity so you know where your scouts are at all times. However, we strongly recommended that you allow your scouts to do some fun merit badges/ actvities and to not just focus on Eagle required merit badges. Camp Alexander prides its self in offering merit badges that are unique to the outdoors to maximize a scout’s experience. Merit badge sessions are designed to only be a part of the scout’s day actvities. In the evening, program areas will be open to all scouts with special events and ac vi es in each area.
We promote an age appropriate camp program and have designed our merit badge and camp wide activities to ensure a Scout’s advancement goals are met while ensuring his enjoyment and excitement at camp. A counseling session prior to camp with the Scoutmaster and SPL will help a Scout achieve his advancement goal. It will also enable our staff to concentrate on the requirements that the Scout needs.
