2019 Camp Big Horn at HESR Summer Resident Camp Week 6
Once you arrive at camp on Sunday we begin the week with swim checks at the Big Horn pool. We have added several new merit badges this summer so that every Scout, even if they have attended Big Horn many times in the past, can come away with new knowledge and skills. Our new merit badges for the 2018 Season include; Search and Rescue, Chess, Game Design, Movie Making, Photography, Geology, Insect Study, and Weather.
Advanced Camper Experience
We have taken our ACE program to the next level! Our improved program takes older youth (14+ or Adult Leader) and immerses them in outdoor fun. The ACE group will form their own Troop and camp together for the entirety of the week. They will not take merit badge classes, but they will participate in incredible ACE only activities like:
-Overnight experience on the iconic Pacific Crest Trail
-Shooting sports activities such as black powder and tomahawk throwing
This has been expanded to include other meaningful Scout experiences other than hiking. Hiking is an important part of a Scout’s development, both physically and mentally, but we understand that some Troops are looking for other ways to check these boxes of development, so we are now offering other opportunities such as:
Everybody likes to shoot, but let’s face it; if you’re not trying to qualify for your merit badge on one of the ranges, poking holes in paper can get a bit dull. So, we are making general improvements to our ranges and adding an arcade style shooting aspect to the rifle range where you can shoot at different targets that spin, swing and sound off when you hit them!
Our facilities are continuing to see new life here at camp. We are working to bring you substantial improvements to the campsites in aesthetics, safety and layout.
Adult Leader Trainings
We recognize that adults have taken the time to bring Scouts to camp, but now you are here and don’t know what to do... Check out our new line-up of adult leader trainings (in our new adult leader lounge), as well as a few of the classics; Safe Swim Defense, Safety Afloat, Climb on Safely, BSA Life Guard, IOLS, Merit Badge Counselor Training, and an opportunity to earn our “Adult Leader Merit Badge”. Now, there is no excuse of having too much time on your hands… if it is possible that you had that anyways!
All of these things sound amazing, but we still offer many incredible ongoing activities at Camp Big Horn that you should know about.
