About Specialty Weeks
Join us at Camp Snyder for the 4th year of our Scouts BSA Program! In 2023 Scouts earned over 700 Merit Badges during this amazing camp.
Camp Snyder has awesome facilities. Among those are our Woodshop, our STEM facility, swimming pool, archery and air rifle ranges, as well as the Scouterhorn climbing tower. We have created our Scouts BSA Specialty program with all the activities Scouts expect from a summer camp. Want to earn your Woodworking Merit Badge? Want to learn about Drones or spend some time in our STEM lab. Do you need to learn basic Scouting skills to advance in rank, like how to start a fire, prepare an outdoor meal or safely use a knife and axe. Come out and spend a week of your summer with us.
Have newly bridged scouts looking for rank advancement skills training and knowledge instruction for obtaining Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class ranks try our Green Bar Bill Program. It’s Perfect for new Scouts! NOTE: Green Bar Bill will be offered on Week 1 in 2024.
Combine your interest in merit badges with camping, dining, swimming, boating, and many other summer camp favorites.
There are two attendance options: 1) Stay at Camp Snyder from Sunday – Saturday, complete your merit badges & enjoy a series of fun evening activities or 2) choose to attend from 9-5 Monday-Friday as a day-only participant for the merit badges class and rank advancement sessions.
