The heart of Scouting is the outdoor experience.  The Scoutcraft area at CTSR offers merit badges that appeal to Scouts of all ages – all in a hands-on, wilderness environment:

  • Camping
  • Geocaching
  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Fire Safety
  • Hiking
  • Orienteering
  • Safety
  • Search and Rescue
  • Wilderness Survival

For those taking Camping and Wilderness Survival, the highlight of the week is the outpost hike and campout.  Led by the Scoutcraft staff, participants will hike to the outer limits of the property before setting up camp for the night.  Those taking Wilderness Survival have the added challenge of building their shelters entirely from natural elements.
