Winter camp is a wonderful opportunity for troops to camp and Scouts to earn merit badges. Merit badge classes are taught by Scouters with real-life experiences in the field. The 33rd annual winter camp will be held at Bovay Scout Ranch (3450 County 317, Navasota, TX 77868), just three miles outside of Navasota, TX. Over 50 merit badge classes are offered, including many merit badges that are not normally offered at summer camp.
Kodiak Challenge is an adventure that pushes the boundaries of every participant— one that will encourage Venturers and Sea Scouts to try new things that may be out of their comfort zone. It is an experience—but one that has its underpinnings in the application of the leadership skills they learned in the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST) or Crews (ILSC), National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT), and/or National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE). It is, as is all of Scouting, an adventure with a purpose. The event is being held at Bovay Scout Ranch (3450 County 317, Navasota, TX 77868).
The Kodiak Challenge is taught by older/more experience unit youth leaders to give participants experience in values and vision, effective teams, communication, decision making, and planning. The Kodiak Challenge is open to registered Scouts ages 14-20 in a crew or ship who are looking for an opportunity to grow personally and are ready for a leadership challenge. Venturers are expected to strive to achieve the above aims while living the principles of the Scout Oath and Law. The cost for each Scout to attend camp is $295. Registration can be completed individually by parents or the crew and ship can register together. Adult leadership from the unit is not required for participation. Staff applications are being accepted; please e-mail the camp registrar for more information.
