Scout Day Participation Patch

On March 8, 2014 Bear Mountain will hold its annual Scout Day. There is no minimum requirement to participate in this event. Family and friends are welcome to join in and take advantage of the savings. We offer discounted rates on lift tickets, rentals, lessons and food. In addition, for each block of 20 tickets purchased, your troop receives the 21st ticket free!

All scouts participating in Scout Day will receive a Bear Mountain Scout Day patch. Bear Mountain follows the guidelines set for the scouts to earn their Snow Sports Merit Badge.

There are some scouts who will be working on achieving the merit badge but, their skill in skiing/snowboarding may not be at the level of the requirements of the Snow Sports Merit Badge. These scouts can still take the first steps in working towards earning their badge by attending the safety meeting and completing the workbooks.
Bear Mountain is offering classes at a discounted rate for those who need to work towards increasing their skill levels in skiing/snowboarding. If your scouts are not able to complete the skills required they should be proud of their accomplishments for the day encouraged that they made a great start to earning their badge.

Bear Mountain is proud of all scouts working towards earning the Boy Scout Snow Sports Merit Badge and we want to acknowledge their dedication and hard work with the participation patch. Please show this patch to your scouts.
