Come to Gerber Scout Reservation and expect a fantastic week of Scout’s learning not only Scout skills but, life-long skills in communication, sportsmanship, high self-esteem and leadership. Set near Twin Lake Michigan inside the Manistee Forest, this camp boasts an amazing amount of opportunities for both the first-year camper and the more experienced Scouts. From our highly visited Handicraft area with it’s solid set of merit badges for the creative Scout to our Power Cut program where Scouts will mountain board and cycle, Gerber has something for every Scout.
Have first year and even second year Scouts that are looking to earn their first advancements towards Eagle Scout? Our Eagle Quest program is the headquarters specifically designed just for these Scouts. Maybe you are looking for something a bit more hands on? Gerber’s welding, farm mechanics and metal working merit badges are some of the many examples of the advancement being taught in the Skilled Trades Center.
And we haven’t even mentioned the aquatics area yet. Gerber’s Big Britton Lake hosts a huge variety of merit badges that may be difficult to earn anywhere else. From canoeing, rowing, small boat sailing, kayaking, and swimming our waterfront staff is excited to help your Scouts succeed. Badges are a lot of fun too at Gerber! It doesn’t matter if your a first year Scout or a Scout leader, all are welcome to come and test their skills at the waterfront.
Make Gerber Scout Reservation part of a Scout’s summer fun!
