The highlight of any camp is the program offered at that camp. In addition to numerous merit badge classes offered at winter camp, the energetic program staff has planned exciting activities all week long. The council's camping committee and the camp staff have made every effort to plan a high-quality program for the Scouts. The goal is to give each Scout the opportunity to seek the advancement or adventure that will help Scouts achieve their objectives program.

Criminal Background Check
The state of Texas requires that the council conduct a criminal background check and sex offender database check on every adult who will be at camp. All adults attending camp in any capacity must complete an Adult in Camp Compliance form a minimum of 30 days before camp, to allow sufficient time for the background checks to be completed.
Adult in Camp Compliance (Background Check)
Every troop must provide one adult volunteer for every six Scouts attending to serve as kitchen staff or a merit badge counselor. Adults who are not attending with the troop and would like to volunteer to serve on staff should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a staff application.
