Boy Scout Camp
Every year, Albuquerque Boy Scout Troop 9, chooses a destination for their annual Boy Scout summer camp. Scout camp is a time when boys can work on merit badges for rank advancement, try new and exciting activies offered only at camp, and learn how to become leaders by trained camp staff and scout troop leaders.
Summer camp is essential to earn the merit badges needed for rank advancements in the Boy Scout program. It is not uncommon for boys to return from camp with 3-4 merit badges earned in one week. If a scout is prepared and works ahead a scout can earn 7-8 merit badges for rank advancement. Summer camp turbo-charges the scout experience.
By experiencing scout camp, boys learn how to accomplish and follow through with activities which build charactor.
