Merit Badge Camp


A weekend packed with extra advancement.

Merit Badge Camp: Date TBA

Merit Badge camp is weekend program for boy scouts to gain up to three extra merit badges. Troops or individual scouts should join us if they can't make summer camp or if they can't get enough of it!

Seven Mountains combines its cheerful staff, modern facilities, and renowned location to create a one-of-a-kind summer camp experience for Boy Scouts. Register for Merit Badges you didn't know existed and prepare to race the friends you meet around our completely on-property five mile single track bike trail.

Seven Mountains is the ideal base for outdoor adventures. Nestled within the Pennsylvanian forest, it’s the perfect place to begin or terminate bike treks on world-class single track bike trails, canoe voyages through thousands of miles of wilderness, or backpacking expeditions through Appalachia and on the Mid State Trail.

Or tour State College’s range of cultural amenities and attend a Penn State Football game at Beaver Stadium, only twenty minutes from Seven Mountains.
