Crossover Camp

The Crossover Camp program is designed to provide Scouts with a structured introduction to camp program. It promotes fun and the learning of basic skills in a patrol environment where rank requirements will be covered organically.

The program provides a comprehensive program to all campers leading to completion of many of the outdoor requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class ranks. Scouts who have just crossed over or may be new to Scouting will find this program ideal for giving them confidence in outdoor skills and also allow a strong beginning along the Scouting trail for advancement.

Brownsea 22

Brownsea 22 is a unique and exciting hands-on residential camp program designed to teach youth leadership skills through the practice of Scout skills. Brownsea concentrates on camping, hiking, nature study, pioneering, and cooking. This course closely parallels the first Scout camp conducted by Lord Baden Powell in 1907. This program places special emphasis on Scout skills, teaching and practice; the purpose of Scouting; and the role of the patrol method within the troop program. It is not done by classroom lecture, but rather by programs of skill, leadership exercise, and patrol competition. Scouts who complete the program will have a better awareness of their own strengths and weaknesses for their personal leadership styles.

The Brownsea Scouts will sleep in tents, prepare their own meals by the patrol method and will be expected to live and act as First Class Scouts. The Brownsea Troop has a maximum of 40 Scouts.

Registration opens April 16th.
