Older Scout Program

If you are a boy scout who has been going to camp for the past couple of years and feel that camp has nothing left to offer you, YOU”RE WRONG! This program is designed for scouts 15 and older that are physically fit and enjoy having a good time in the outdoors. Biking; Hiking; Swimming; Kayaking; Canoeing and more; Sound like fun! If you think this is for you, and you meet all the requirements, make sure to sign-up for this great program.

Outpost Camps

If you are not yet old enough to go on the Older Scout Program don’t worry, we also offer a few over night excursion to remote areas of the camp property or even off camp property! They are all fun and open to every Scout. These outposts are the highlight of the week at camp, providing some of the most exciting experiences that a boy could dream of. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT ANY SCOUTS ATTENDING ANY OUTPOST CAMP MUST HAVE HIS OWN HIKING GEAR INCLUDING: BACKPACK, BEDROLL, SLEEPING BAG, HIKING SHOES, WATER BOTTLE, RAIN GEAR, ETC.

Shooting Sports Complex

Recently, in 2005, we have added the Hulquist Shooting Sports Complex that allows us to shoot 22’s, Shotgun, and Black Powder at one great place. Located at the back part of camp the Shooting sports complex is great for Scouts and Scouters who love to shooting sports to participate in our program. We also have covered pavilions that offer an Archery and BB Gun Program for scouts of all ages. *Introduced in 2008; we offer a BB Gun Award Program for scouts not old enough to shoot 22’s, Black Powder, or Shotgun. 

Sailing, Water Skiing, Sailing, and MORE!

Camp Merz is located on beautiful Chautauqua Lake giving us the chance to utilize our water front to the fullest extent.  Our water front activities include: swimming, canoeing, snorkeling, sailing, rowing, water skiing, motor boating, and more!  ~Because of rising fuel costs water skiing and motor boating include a small fee, please see the Leader’s guide for more information.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ANY WATER ACTIVITY REQUIRES THE USE OF CLOSED TOE WATER SHOES. NO EXCEPTIONS CAN BE MADE TO THIS IMPORTANT SAFETY RULE.
