Camp Tahuaya 2019
Welcome to Camp Tahuaya, your 2018 Summer Camp Adventure!
Camp Tahuaya has served the Boy Scouts of America for over 80 years. We have many exciting programs and over 60 merit badges your Scouts can choose from. The Camp Tahuaya Staff is looking forward to providing your troop a fun and memorable summer camp experience. In this guide you will find all the information you’ll need to know about in order to sign up for merit badge classes and evening programs.
We would like to draw your attention to a unique program we offer, a SCUBA course for Scouts who are at least 14 years old. That means the adults also. Upon completion of the course, the participant will have earned the Open Water Certification and the SCUBA patch; the Scout will have earned the SCUBA Merit Badge too. Additional fees apply and online material must be completed prior to summer camp. Scouts can earn merit badges throughout the week as well.
Adult leaders, your trip to Camp Tahuaya will be a vacation with many activities and adult leader trainings for you to participate in each day. We have activities such as Water Volleyball with the staff, Scoutmaster Fishing Tournament, and of course the Cobbler Cook-off. Participation in these activities, along with some other requirements, can help you earn the Scoutmaster Merit Badge. Wow, what a great way for you to relax and enjoy your stay with us.
Merit badge registration will be online. All merit badges are listed on this site and are broken down into four periods, two in the morning and two in the afternoon. Some merit badges can be completed in two days rather than the normal four days but in either case there is sufficient time to complete the badge here at Camp Tahuaya unless there are requirements that are listed here as incomplete. Additional time can be spent at the merit badge areas during free time and there is makeup time on Friday morning. All of this helps you earn quality merit badges during your stay at Camp Tahuaya. Please take time to review the schedule, and should you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
Yours in Scouting,
Camp Tahuaya Camp Director
