Eagle Week 2024
YOUR JOURNEY TO EAGLE CONTINUES... EAGLE WEEK 2024
The Eagle Week Program is an intensive learning program conducted one week during the summer. Community Experts who are accomplished in the Merit Badges offered are brought to camp to conduct rigorous, but valuable instruction for Scouts working towards the rank of Eagle. Participants are housed in air-conditioned housing throughout their stay, and all courses are conducted in air-conditioned environments at Camp La-No-Che.
Eagle Week is held at Camp La-No-Che during Summer Camp and is its own stand-alone program. Scouts attend as individuals and Troops are formed from all participants. Adult Staff members fill the roles of Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster during the week and provide supervision. Participants take Eagle Merit Badge programs of their choosing in the morning and afternoon, and in the evening are invited to engage in special Troop Time Activities arranged through various camp program areas including: Adventure Camp, Aquatics, & Shooting Sports.
Scouts who select certain Eagle Merit Badge will have the opportunity to go on a Field Trip during the week to complete necessary requirements in seeing a government meeting conducted, and the visiting and touring of a federal building. Scouts not completing the field trip will be able to stay back at camp, and begin additional Eagle Merit Badges they may need.
During the Eagle Week Program, participants also are joined by the CFC Advancement Committee, and a Life To Eagle Workshop is conducted. During this workshop participants are led through the Eagle Application Process, Eagle Project Approval Process, and Eagle Scout Board of Review Process.
At the conclusion of the Eagle Week a closing breakfast is held with all participants. Awards and recognitions are shared and a Special Guest Speaker attends to share their words on the Journey to the Eagle Scout Award. We look forward to serving 50-100 Scouts this year on their journey to Eagle Awards at Camp La-No-Che!
- July 7-13th, 2024
The merit programs can be added to the schedule starting on March 1st. Each participant is required to fill their schedule completely with those programs offered. Most sessions each day offer at least 2 merit badge options, so Scouts if needed can select an alternate badge if one has already been earned. Merit Badge Counselors will be on hand to ensure Scouts are productive.
Participants beginning on March 1st can access all Eagle Required Merit Badge Pre-requisites, Supplies and Materials for their Eagle Week Program through the event registration landing page. Scouts can then prepare over the remaining 4 months the necessary material, research, and projects to share with their counselor on arrival to Camp La-No-Che. Scouts who complete these requirements, as well as the necessary course work during the week have the best opportunity to leave camp with completed Eagle Merit Badges.
