Harford Day CampHarford’s day camp has a jammed packed program that provides each rank the opportunity to complete about a quarter of their upcoming year’s rank requirements. Some highlights fromthe program include: sports, arts & crafts, leather working, BB & archery ranges, woodworking, citizenship activities, and fishing, just to name a few. In addition to meeting requirements, each station rewards the boy’s effort by presenting them with a bead or other small award to add to their collection. Some activities may earn them a belt loop or special patch as well!
