Polaris is our First Year Camper Experience, which will introduce your new Scout to new skills, provide an opportunity to advance, and experience unique summer actives in one action packed program. This program is ideal for new Scouts as each Scout will get…

• A great energetic, caring and knowledgeable staff all week long!
• Completion of many requirements for the ranks of Scout through First Class
• To visit and participate in activities in every area in camp!
• Tons of Scout spirit, work as a team, and develop their leadership skills! 
• The Polaris patch to wear on your uniform!
• A supportive environment and will be grouped with other Scouts just like them!
• To make new friends
• To learn the patrol method and how it forms the basis of Scouting.

During the week the Polaris group will have an over-night this year on Wednesday night, wake up cook a delicious breakfast as a Polaris group and as a group hike beautifully scenic Rattlesnake Mountain together on Thursday!

The Polaris program runs periods 2 and 3 in the morning, the first period is open for Scouts to earn their first merit badge in a topic of their interest like swimming, crafts, or nature.  Scouts can also get some tutoring in swimming provided by our great aqua staff and work towards swimming skills needed for rank advancement.
