EAGLE Requirement CAMP 2020 Has Been CANCELLED

Eagle Requirement Camp is an intensive week-long Scouts BSA Summer Camp program focusing on advancement in many of the specifically-required merit badges for the Eagle Scout rank.  Scouts who prior to camp, have completed all the prerequisites for merit badges such as Personal Management, Family Life, etc., may be able to earn several merit badges during the week.

LOCATION:   Camp Royaneh, 4600 Scanlon Road, Cazadero, CA

DATES:   CANCELLED

COST:   $500 (includes a 2020 Summer Camp T-shirt)

The focus of the camp is advancement, however many traditional Summer Camp program opportunities exist for free-time fun and enjoyment such as shooting sports, swimming, handicrafts and more.  The staff includes veteran adult Scouters with extensive experience as merit badge counselors in these Eagle-required subject areas.

This full-week session is limited to 20 Scout participants. Acceptance to the camp will be on a first-come, first-serve basis with priority given to older Scouts.

Please plan to attend a mandatory orientation meeting held at 11 am Saturday, May 9th, 2020 at the YLTC, 1001 Davis Street, San Leandro, CA.  At this meeting participants will get the chance to meet the Staff/Merit Badge Counselors and receive important information regarding their week at camp.

All Scouts BSA youth, regardless of rank or progress in rank, must now use the current requirements (that came out on January 1st, 2018).
