2021 Winter Blast at R-C Scout Ranch

Winter Blast is a unique scouting experience designed for Scouts 13 and older that focuses on Eagle required badges, STEM, and winter fun.  This program is lead entirely by provisional leadership handpicked from our best summer camp staff—no parents or unit leadership allowed.  While atypical, this environment fosters creativity and learning, encourages personal responsibility, and provides  time with good friends.

Get ready to earn badges not offered at summer camp — learn the basics of chemistry through exciting experiments; weld metal for the first time; or experiment with an aviation simulator. Scouts will choose their schedule and be able to learn about what interests them the most.

Inside our heated facilities at R-C Scout Ranch, Scouts will deliver good citizenship as we discuss the rights, duties, and obligations of active citizenship in America. They will explore changes in science and technology while learning ways to live a more sustainable life.  But most importantly, they are going to have a lot of fun! 

Because night comes earlier, fall and winter offer great opportunities to view prominent stars. In December R-C Scout Ranch will be the place for earning unique badges and unique activities like stargazing! Escape the Valley and end 2021 with a Winter Blast and a rockin’ New Year’s Eve Party!

Sign-Up soon! We are looking to have 25 participants by November 29th to make our new camp be a WINTER BLAST!

This registration minimum and deadline is set to ensure that limited volunteer and financial resources are not spent on programs with little to no interest or participation, and that our efforts can be spent on where it will have the biggest impact on Arizona Scouting.
