First year scouts mountain man program
First Year Scouts - Mountain Man Program


The Mountain Man Program is designed for those Scouts who have either just crossed over from Webelos or have limited camping experience. Basic Scout skills for the new Scout form the basis of the program.


Mountain Man is a two-hour program held every morning all week. There are two sessions every day. The remainder of the day, scouts can work on merit badges that may interest them, or participate in troop activity periods. Scouts are instructed in the following skill areas: wood tools, meal preparation and cooking, pioneering, knots, orienteering, nature, first aid, and outdoor citizenship. In addition, scouts can participate in a five- mile hike, which is held most evenings.


All Mountain Main participants will receive a “Mountain Man” t-shirt to commemorate their week at camp.


There will be a Mountain Man Orientation Meeting on Sunday night at 7:00 PM for troop leaders involved with this program.
