There is a possibility of an overnight stay at a church (similar to a few years ago when the troop went to Raven Knob in NC). In addition please note, there is an additional charge for transportation for the out of state camp. Last year’s charge was approximately $50 per scout.

Tips: Scroll though the entire Leader Guides. The information included will answer many of your questions. Please note some merit badge classes have an extra fee and/or age requirement. The earlier we get your merit badge class selections the better chance you have to get your desired classes. Please copy & paste from the template below your scout’s information (name, DOB, age & any allergies) and their class choices. Email your requests to Margaret Turner, your liaison for the Out-of-State Camp Skymont. Merit badge classes will need to be approved by the scoutmaster.
