GEC - CampingCampingArctic Adventure/Winter Camp 2020

Session 1 of the Arctic Adventure at the NorCal Adventure Area is scheduled November  21 - 24.  As it is less than 3 months out, we have converted this event to a virtual event.  Introducing Arctic Adventure Eagle Camp!  Your scouts can sign up for their choice of Merit Badges and get started on their Eagle work.  While none of the merit badges will be complete, we will cover the book work part of each badge to help with their Scouting journey and keep them in touch.  There are 6 sessions total and Scouts are welcome to sign up for their choice of classes, number of classes, etc.  It will include campfires, interfaith services, Order of the Arrow gatherings and more!  Please click this link for more information!  Prices are adjusted as the format has changed.  Our link is full of information and we are happy to answer your questions at any time.  Simply email


Session 1 - November 21 - 24



We hope you will join us at NorCal for this great event.  Winter camp is all the fun of summer camp, without the heat and bugs!  Each day is spent in 4 merit badge classes and nights are spent together either in the training facility playing games and sipping hot cocoa, taking a unique merit badge or in your campsites around a nice fire.  Class registrations will open for both November and December sessions on October 15th.

The weather in December at NorCal Adventure Area is a mixture and occasionally we even have a bit of snow.  It is nothing that our Scouts can't handle but please make sure your Scouts are prepared for several days of mixed weather and temperatures.  Layers and dry clothing are key to enjoying this adventure.


Date: Session 2 - December 27 - 31

Price: Scouts - $100.00

December 2020 Class Grid

Nothing is consistent in 2020 except for change.  We are still unable to have in person camping, so have to change our December Winter Camp to an all virtual format.  The cost has been decreased to represent the change in offerings and food/shelter that is no longer needed.  If you have registered for Arctic Adventure already, we will be refunding your money in the next 10 days.  We are saddened by this decision but it is time for us to move forward to be able to provide great programming to our Scouts and that requires planning.  Please use the registration link below to register as individuals for this great event.  

While the November event focuses on Eagle required merit badges where Scouts can choose from 1-6 Eagle required Merit Badges.  The December camp will offer a traditional merit badge format with the opening campfire on the 27th and 3 days of merit badge classes finishing up with an closing campfire on the morning of the 31st.  Below is the merit badge grid to help your Scouts select their classes.
