December 27-31, 2015
Wa-Hi-Nasa Lodge is proud to serve the Middle Tennessee Council by hosting Winter Camp for the 13th consecutive year. The theme for 2015 is the Boxwell Island Adventure.
Winter Camp in 2015, will again have extra time allotted in the afternoon for Merit Badges to be completed that require additional time as well as some limited Merit Badge classes. We have also added new merit badges to the line-up to include Motorboating, Metalwork and Search & Rescue. We hope to have additional opportunities in the Fall.
Afternoon activities will focus on games and activities to provide fun and excitement for Scouts. We will once again have everyone’s favorite afternoon activities to include black powder, shotgun shooting, archery and hatchet throwing. We will also open camp with a great campfire program with fireworks! For Unit Leaders that are interested we are going to hold a Philmont Orientation Class, Red Cross First Aid, American Hearth Assoc. CPR and the Eagle Rank Process Discussion by the Council Advancement Chair: *What Constitutes an Eagle Project? *Review the Eagle Application Packet.
Winter Camp is truly a unique opportunity that allows scouts to experience Boxwell Scout Reservation in a greatly diverse way. A scout is able to earn merit badges and participate in activities that are not obtainable at summer camp along with learning more about the Order of the Arrow. The weather, activities, training, and overall camp atmosphere are vastly unique. For those who may not know between our Winter Camp and Summer Camp programs we offer all of the Eagle required merit badges.
We are positive Scouts attending Winter Camp will not be disappointed with their experience. Just ask one of the hundreds of satisfied campers who have attended Winter Camp in the past. Also, please keep in mind that over the last two years registration has been closed due to the program reaching capacity – so plan early and mark your calendar for registration to open in early September.
We are excited about Winter Camp 2015 and look forward to seeing you there!
