Lone Star Scoutcraft

This summer I was tapped to serve as the Counselor down at the Lone Star Scoutcraft Lodge, and let me tell you, it’s a lot of fun already. I’m not even done with first session yet and I’m enjoying both working with my staff (all first year guys) and campers. They’re having a blast.
Now at Scoutcraft, we teach five merit badges in total. Camping, Wilderness Survival, First Aid, Geocaching, and Pioneering. We also have a program for scouts who have not yet achieved the rank of First Class, befittingly called Trail to First Class.
In our merit badges you’ll learn how to camp properly, how to survive in the wilderness (with and without gear,) how to build big and useful things with just some rope and long poles, and even how to potentially save someone’s life some day. And oh yeah, geocaching is fun too! We have nice new geocaches that really will be fun to find and hike around for.
Scoutcraft is a great place to learn your knots, learn Scouting skills, and have fun. I invite everyone to come down and see us for a badge or two this summer. I can already see that it’s gonna be a good one.
