At Camp Workcoeman we feel that earning the rank of Eagle Scout requires three main components: merit badges, the service project, and leadership development. With that in mind, our weeklong program is designed to address more than just the merit badge requirements. Scouts form a troop with a dedicated Trail to Eagle Scoutmaster with whom we've partnered for nearly a decade. As part of the troop, the boys work in patrols, are counseled on unit leadership skills, and take on the roles as would happen in their typical troop. There are additional discussions/ seminars about leadership styles and how to grow in one's own troop. Lastly, the Trail to Eagle unit works together to plan and carry out a service project at camp that emulates the stages of the Eagle service project. Additionally, considerable time is spent reviewing the Eagle Project Workbook and guiding Scouts through what is expected when completing the necessary paperwork.
In addition to our regularly provided merit badges which can be found in the program guide, there will be additional Eagle required classes including: Camping, Citizenship in the Nation, Citizenship in the World, Communication, Cooking, Emergency Preparedness, Environmental Science, First Aid, Lifesaving, Personal Fitness, and Swimming.
