Adult leaders are Scouts too, and it is part of our mission to provide meaningful adult programs with as much fun as possible. Adult patrols may participate in troop and patrol programs alongside their Scouts. The Scouts always enjoy seeing their leaders do the same things they are attempting. Any adults who wish to participate should speak with their Campsite Host or the Program Director at the beginning of the week.
One of our goals at CFL is to help adult leaders obtain the essential training required to run a great Scouting program. These training courses are scheduled for specific times and days throughout the week at camp. Please sign up for adult leader training courses online using the Merit Badge online sign up system. Here is a list of the training courses we offer at camp.

SCOUT LEADER MERIT BADGE
The Scout Leader Merit Badge has returned after an extremely successful first summer in 2015! To earn this award, Scout Leaders must complete a variety of requirements including attending leader’s meetings, participating in program area activities, and even taking a nap! More information will be available at camp.
If you or another leader in your troop is certified to train any of the above training courses, we need your help! Please volunteer your time by helping train other leaders attending camp during your week at camp. Also, if you have another Scout skill or craft skill that you wish to share with Scouts or adults during the week, let us know at the leader’s meeting so that we can set up a time and advertise the opportunity to other campers.
The CFL Staff is always looking for adults who are willing to donate their time and talents. One way to help is by assisting with large merit badge classes. If an adult in your troop is knowledgeable on a merit badge topic, please contact the Program Director and we will pair the adult with a staff counselor. If there are adults coming to camp with your troop who would like to help the staff using trade or hobby skills, please let us know. The Camp Ranger has a list of projects and is always willing to involve volunteers to accomplish these tasks.
