Camp Melita Island ACE

A.C.E. (Advanced Camper Experience)
The ACE program is designed to give a challenging camping experience to older scouts. Its aims are on advanced skills, physical fitness, service, and adventure experiences to challenge and advance their basic scouting skills. The ACE program is separate from the camp’s merit badge program. As such it should be for your older scouts that are good swimmers, do not need Merit Badges to advance, and have been at two or more summer camps before. Activities include water sports, kayaking, board sailing, and snorkeling. This year’s program includes a ½ day Whitewater rafting trip down Flathead River below Kerr Dam, a day hike on nearby Wild Horse Island, and a full day sailing experience. ACE Participants have a chance to improve their leadership skills through team building activities, and also provide meaningful service throughout the week. There is an additional $50 fee for all ACE participants.
