Modeled around learning proper nutrition, behavior, and exercise, this program is perfectly lined up to help all athletes who have fall sports to ‘get tuned up’ for the upcoming season!  Partials in Sports & Athletics Merit Badges are the underlying framework to our daily activities and fun (and active) competitions both through conventional and unconventional events will keep us moving!  We will explore the Venturing Physical Fitness Award, the ScoutSTRONG initiative and incorporate parts of the Venturing QUEST award into our curriculum.  This is an advanced adventure where you can complete advancement and experience both camps at Griswold Scout Reservation in new and unique ways!  An off-site field trip to a nearby gym and/or park may occur, as well, via DWC Bus and staffed by trained leadership.  Participants check-into Hidden Valley on Sunday and will shift camps mid-way to also experience the best of Camp Bell!  Check-out is from Hidden Valley on Saturday morning at the end of this week you won’t soon forget!  This program requires active movement and stretching through an athletic training regimen – suited for all ages, but, not for the ‘couch potato’ or ‘observer,’ only.  Participants will be challenged athletically at their level of ability regardless of how many register for the program.  Weightlifting basics will be included, as well.  Open to individuals, buddy pairs, Patrols, Troops, and Crews!
