F.R.O.G.S. - Our first year camper program makes for a great week of fun and advancement!
The F.R.O.G.S. program is designed for Scouts who have just joined a troop and need to work on their rank requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class ranks. This will give Scouts the opportunity to work on merit badges either in the morning or afternoon, depending on when he signs up for the F.R.O.G.S. program.
Emphasis will be placed on the following skills:
Scouts that complete the program will be ready to pass off several requirements*. Just as important, the Scouts that participate in the program should return to the troop with some newly developed Scouting and campcraft skills.
Who should participate in the program? That is up to the Scoutmaster and camp leadership. The majority of the Scouts in this program will be 10 ½ and 11 years old as the program is geared towards boys who are new to Scouting or have just bridged from Webelos to Boy Scouting recently.
