On the Wilderness Survival Campout, scouts have the opportunity to build and sleep in their own shelter. The Greenville Farm Family Campground is a rustic location with ample timberland to forage for building material and test your survival skills. For those interested in earning the Wilderness Survival Merit Badge, “be prepared” by opening a Blue Card with the Merit Badge Coordinator, Mr. Aller. Then, review and complete available merit badge requirements in advance. Our Wilderness Survival Merit Badge Counselor, Mr. Schmand, will be the ASM Lead for this camping adventure.
