  • Dan Beard in the morning/aquatics in the afternoon. Recommended choice for first-year Scouts. Scouts who successfully complete the BSA swimmer test will work on the Swimming merit badge. Scouts who require more assistance will work on their swimming strokes through instructional swim sessions. These Scouts are given the opportunity to re-take their swimmer test as soon as they are ready.
  • Dan Beard in the morning/one merit badge in the afternoon. Choose from any one of the merit badges offered. Choose this option if the Scout prefers to work on a merit badge other than Swimming.
  • Full day of merit badges. Sign up for merit badges online as part of the registration process. You may take up to three morning merit badges and one after lunch. Recommended for Scouts who are at least First Class or those who have completed the Dan Beard program.

Trailblazer allows more experienced Scouts to focus on earning merit badges, completing partials or working on advancement. Many older Scouts come to Camp Somers with their troops or with the Provisional Camp Troop for the overnight camp experience and then attend the Trailblazer program to earn or complete merit badges.

The Trailblazer program can be based on each individual Scout’s needs.
