What is an Older Scout Program?
In the mornings and afternoons, Many Point offers unique adventures for Scouts going into 8th grade or older. These programs are not advancement-focused, meaning that very few of them offer merit badges. Instead, these programs are focused on offering fun and exciting experiences for those who have experienced most of what we have to offer.
What is Tier 1 and Tier 2?
Tier 1 and Tier 2 programs are both older Scout programs. We use this distinction to separate the programs that have a larger time commitment from those that are a single-day activity.
Tier 1 programs are a single day or overnight adventure. Each day, a different group of Scouts will be doing these programs. For example, if you sign up for an ATV session, you will be doing it for one afternoon. Then, a different group will be on the ATVs the next day. Scouts submit their preferences for these programs and Many Point then assigns what times these programs will be taken. Your Scouts will learn which programs they were placed in when they arrive to camp on Sunday.
Tier 2 programs are programs that older Scouts will do for multiple days during their week. Registration for these programs opens April 1st and closes April 14th. Many Point then place Scouts into these programs on April 15. Afterwards, these programs become first come, first served.
Can I take both Merit Badges and Older Scout Programs?
Yes. Scouts registered in older Scout programs may end up missing a day or two of merit badges. They can make up these missed requirements during free time or in-site unit time. Scouts accepted into Tier 2 older Scout programs will not be able to participate in any of the Merit Badge sessions.
