Trail to Eagle Week at Camp Minsi

Trail to Eagle Specialty Camp
July 31 - August 6, 2011
Camp Minsi - Minsi Trail Council, BSA

Join us for an exciting specialty week at Camp Minsi this summer. The "Trail to Eagle" specialty camp program will once again run at Camp Minsi! Scouts are invited to come participate in this exclusive opportunity and work on four Eagle-required Merit Badges, learn about the planning and requirements of an Eagle leadership project, understand the specific parts of the Trail to Eagle process, and experience advanced leadership development. This special one-week program will be run July 31 to August 6, 2011 at Camp Minsi.

In addition to being able to participate in the wealth of acitivites Camp Minsi has to offer, Scouts will be given an opportunity to work on Citizenship in the Nation, Citizenship in the World, Communications, and Personal Management Merit Badges. With highly-qualified instructors leading the Merit Badge sessions, Scouts will have a unique and meaningful learning experiance with each of these badges. Scouts will spend their week as a member of the special Trail to Eagle troop, which will have adult staffmembers serving as Scoutmasters to supervise them in their own Troop site as they function in a model Boy Scout troop.

Be prepared! Some Merit Badge requirements involve a long timespan or special conditions to complete; such requirement must be completed prior to camp. Pre-requirements must be done to the satisfaction and standards of Camp Minsi's Trail to Eagle counselors. The pre-requirements (listed below) will not be completed in camp and should be completed by Scouts prior to coming to camp.

Merit Badge pre-requirments
  • Citizenship in the Nation - Requirement 2
  • Citizenship in the World - Requirement 7
  • Communications - Requirements 3 and 8
  • Personal Management - Requirements 2, 8 and 9

Due to the advanced level of the program, Scouts must be at least 14-years-old (as of June 1, 2011) and have attained the rank of First Class in order to participate in the Trail to Eagle program at Camp Minsi.
