Tougher than a Boy Scout

Posted on Apr 25 2016 - 9:34am


Tougher Than A Boy Scout Challenge Weekend! 
April 22-24

The weekend is an entirely a patrol focused weekend.  Everything, is oriented toward the patrol.  Menu planning, Shopping, Cooking, Competitions, Campfires, etc.  Patrol Leaders, you are in charge of making sure your patrol sets the budget.

What is the Tougher Than A Boy Scout Challenge Weekend?

This is a patrol competition based weekend where patrols compete against patrol for points and awards.  This event is structured similar to the television show of the same name.  Patrols will be given a map with a destination marked which contains their ‘next challenge’.  The patrol must work together to locate that challenge location, then work together to successfully complete the challenged.  Once the challenge is completed, their next challenge is identified on the map.  Patrols are scored on how successfully the completed the challenge and time.  The patrol with the ‘most’ points wins the competition.

There have typically been about 9 to 10 challenges for the scouts to find and complete.  These are located all over the camp property.  Last year, we did have a couple challenges all together to determine which patrol got to head out first on the course. 

Where is the Tougher Than A Boy Scout Challenge Weekend held?

This is being held at Camp Babcock-Hovey.  It has many great resources for an event like this.  It has served us well each year.

Registration deadline is April 11, so register here!
