Located in the deep deciduous forests of the Cumberland Plateau, scouts have the opportunity to work towards 50+ merit badges, including nearly every Eagle rank required merit badge. Scouts that are 12+ at the time of camp have an opportunity to go white-water rafting on the last full day of camp, while younger scouts can go explore spring-fed waterfalls, caves, and more on their last day of camp. Did I mention that the average daily high is 84º during the high of summer?

Summer 2017 - Merit Badge Camp (For All Scouts)

Camp Cris Dobbins - Colorado

Nestled in the middle of the Black Forest, Camp Cris Dobbins offers sweeping views of Pikes Peak and the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Scouts will have a hard time choosing between the more than 50 merit badges offered here, and will love spending time on the water slides at the outdoor pool, dusting a clay at the Olympic shotgun range, channeling their inner movie star in our Moviemaking program, or pretending to be Indiana Jones at our STEM lodge archaeology dig site. The convenience of meals from our dining hall and sleeping on raised wooden platforms in canvas wall tents will allow Scouts to focus on the only thing that matters: their next outdoor adventure!
