Advance Camp

September 27-28, 2024 | Solano County Fairgrounds

AdvanceCamp provides scouts with the opportunity to complete advancement begun at another scout event, to start and complete advancement with the completion of all requirements during the camp, or to begin work on and make a contact with a counselor to complete a merit badge at a later time.

From 300 Scouts and 15 merit badges to a major annual gathering, thanks to the tireless efforts of Steve Hoagland, the Executive Director of AdvanceCamp.
