Jimmie Dyess First Year Program


Jimmie Dyess First-Year Scout Program


The Jimmie Dyess First-Year Scout Program is a high quality Scout Skill program that works with new first-year Scouts to learn the essential Scout Skills required for the ranks of Scout through First Class.

This popular and exciting element of the Scoutcraft program is designed for Scouts who are attending camp for the first time, but it is not limited to these Scouts.

Activities are centered on three objectives: basic skills, cooperation, and Scouting ideals. Each Scout is able to learn material for his age and experience level.

Swimming Merit Badge, First Aid Merit Badge, Camping, Cooking, Hiking, Firem’n Chit and Totin’ Chip are some of the skills each Scout will learn allowing them to qualify for several of the Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class Requirements.

Participants in this program will need to bring a backpack and the following items: ground cloth, sleeping bag, lightweight tent, Scout knife, compass, homemade first aid kit, and canteen or water bottle. 

You can select this program option under the ScoutCraft section for online Merit Badge registration.
