The Merit Badge program of the BSA is one of the finest educational tools available. Many great careers and exciting hobbies have had their start as a part of the merit badge program. BTSR will make every effort to create a fun and informative learning environment. Many merit badges require more than one short week to complete; however, great progress can be made at camp if the Scout is fully prepared. We offer over 50 merit badges during the summer making BTSR your best option in advancement.

At BTSR we are proud to have one of the best and finest first year camper programs in the nation. With "Trail To Eagle" we ensure that new scouts are given the best possible scouting experiences, as well as the best opportunity for rank advancements to first class. Scouts in this program will also have the opportunity to earn their swimming and first aid merit badges.
