Here’s something cool your Troop could do for one of their monthly outings…
Why not visit the historic Camp Floyd State Park in Fairfield, Utah to work on the American Heritage Merit Badge and earn the Historic Trails Award? Organized as Johnston’s Army Adventure Camp, your overnight stay would be in pioneer-style military tents at a real army camp that dates back to 1858!

What a neat way to experience a little bit of American history, shoot some Civil War-era guns and feel what it was like to be a soldier in pioneer days.
This two-day program is offered only 16 weekends each year. Fees are $20 per boy / adult, which includes all camp materials and breakfast. While sleeping accommodations are included as mentioned above, scouts will need to provide their own sleeping gear. Camp size is limited to 30 scouts and leaders.
