Camp Buck Toms offers something for each Scout with the Dan Beard first-year camper program, high adventure programs, and over 50 dynamic merit badges. These highly sought-after merit badges include welding, robotics, cycling, motor boating, archery, rifle shooting, shotgun shooting, and many more. In addition to merit badges Scouts can participate in programs such as BSA Lifeguard, Paul Bunyan Woodsman, COPE, and Mile Swim to name a few.
