K2BSA/8 Trail to Eagle (TTE) 2022 in Metamora, MI
July 4 - July 8
The Trail to Eagle (TTE) program is a specifically designed program for the older Scout to give them the [TTE Eagle] opportunity to work on the merit badges they need to finish the Eagle Scout rank requirements. It is a one week, highly structured program held at D-bar-A Scout Ranch. Scouts must be at least 1st Class rank by June 26th and 13 years of age.. Trial to Eagle Course Director Ed Basar and his volunteer staff have been proud to sponsor this event for 25 years and continue to set the bar high every year.
Since its inception in 1995, over 2,400 Eagle candidates from 12 states, 31 councils, as well as from the Far East and Trans Atlantic Councils, have attended this unique, one of a kind program. One of the largest attended camps had 191 Scouts participate from six states, eleven different councils, and a Scout from Shanghai, China. Scouts from nearly every corner of the Michigan Crossroads Council have participated in this event.
Over 55% of our candidates have attained the rank of Eagle Scout and even more are still working on achieving this lofty goal. We have had 60 staff members who have been with the program for ten years or more. There is a ratio of one staff member for every two youth.
During their week at TTE, the radio merit badge will be offered to scouters. We will also maintain the K2BSA/8 TTE special event station, making others on the airwaves aware of and promoting our long history of the Trail To Eagle Program over the various amateur radio bands. https://scoutingevent.com/272-TTE2022
