Yawgoog Scout Reservation

Yawgoog Scout Reservation is a 1,800-acre reservation for scouting located in Rockville, Rhode Island, and operated by the Narragansett Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Founded in 1916, Yawgoog is the fifth-oldest Boy Scout camp in the United States.

Yawgoog is divided into three separate Camps: Camp Three Point, Camp Medicine Bow, and Camp Sandy Beach. All three camps share reservation program facilities. For example, the Nature Center is located in Camp Three Point, but is available to all Scouts on the Reservation. Each Camp has its own traditions: a color, songs, and cheers, but all three Camps offer the same opportunities to Scouts. The atmosphere of healthy Camp competition is a unique aspect of the Yawgoog experience.

Advancement Goals

Earning merit badges (MB) during summer camp is a crucial aspect of scouting, offering scouts the opportunity to develop new skills, gain valuable knowledge, and work towards higher ranks. Summer camp provides an ideal environment to focus on these badges, thanks to the concentrated time and resources available. 

For a comprehensive list of merit badges available at this year's summer camp and their prerequisites, please visit the official Yawgoog site

(!) This year they added MB's Horsemanship, Ice Skating, and Electricity.
