Sabattis offers a complete line of merit badge instruction in Nature, Handicraft, and Scoutcraft. At Nature you can learn about Geology, Forestry, Mammals and much more.
Handicrafts gives you the chance to have fun building projects with your hands and earn Merit Badges as well. You may also be able to help work on a camp wood carving project like a totem pole or carve an animal statue.
Our Scoutcraft offerings include Cooking, Pioneering, Orienteering and more. In addition to merit badge work we also put on many demonstrations during the week of different cooking techniques, pioneering projects and more.
You can become a more valuable Scout to your unit with the things you can learn from our outstanding staff!
At Sabattis Scout Reservation, you can choose Archery, Rifle Shooting and Shotgun. Archery will let you polish your skills and let you make your own arrow and bow string to keep. At Rifle Shooting you’ll learn how to safely clean and shoot firearms. Note: you must be 12 years old to participate in the Rifle Program and 13 for the shotgun. Our instructors are all top notch and fully qualified to help you become the best!
At Sabattis Scout Reservation, you’re sure to have all the water fun you want. A full range of activities are offered. You can learn to swim or work on merit badges like Swimming, Lifesaving, Rowing, Canoeing, or Small Boat Sailing. You can earn your BSA Lifeguard certification, play with Kayaks, Wind Surfers, Funyaks as well as take other aquatics training. For water activities there’s no place better to come!
There ought to be a law against having this much fun!! Challenge Valley is an obstacle course where the Scouts get a chance to compete against the nine obstacles – not each other. They get to climb walls, swing on ropes, splash through a frog pond, wallow in the mud and much more. At the end of your Troops run, the dirtiest Scout gets a certificate letting the whole world know about it.
Leaders are invited to participate (those that don’t join in the fun have been known to get a group hug from their Scouts)!
