Located near the northern edge of the mysterious Okefenokee Swamp, this park is home to many fascinating creatures and plants, including alligators and carnivorous pitcher plants.  Walking or biking along the lake’s edge and nature trail, visitors may spot the shy gopher tortoise, numerous oak varieties, saw palmettos, yellow shafted flickers, warblers, owls and great blue herons. The park’s lake offers opportunities for fishing, swimming and boating, and kayaks and bicycles are available for rent.  The Lakes, a championship 18-hole golf course, features a clubhouse, golf pro and junior/senior rates. Greens are undulating rather than tiered. Each fairway and landing area is defined with gentle, links-style mounds that accent the course’s three large lakes.  The park’s namesake was a Georgia writer, teacher, civic leader and naturalist who loved trees and worked for their preservation.

Top Requirements for Summer Camp Merit Badges

Posted on Jul 27 2015 - 5:27pm
  • Between camp and the Fall COH: Since Blue Cards will not be handed out until the following COH, either make a copy of the advancement report from camp OR print out their Individual History Report once the Partials are entered into TM. Give them to the Scouts.

    The Scouts can then use the document as a temporary Blue Card - MB Counselors can sign off on them and date the paper, then bring it to the Advancement Chair to enter into TM. By the time COH comes around, they will receive the updated Blue Card (paperclipped to the other MBs) or, if they finish, both the Blue Card and MB at the COH (stapled together).

Below is a list of the top ten merit badges/rank requirements that aren't completed at camp.
