About Specialty Week

Specialty Week for 2016 will be held during the week of July 31st to August 6th at Camp Marriott. Trail to Eagle, Beach & Yacht, Field & Stream, and The Marriott Project are the featured programs for this year. Instead of regular Merit Badge program, participants select one of four themed programs and engage in activities, Merit Badges, awards, and other offerings based around that program theme. Specialty Week is traditionally largely attended by provisional Scouts (attending individually instead of with a unit), but is also open to units. Specialty week is open to Scouts ages 13 and up as well as Venturers, Varsity Scouts, Sea Scouts, and Explorers.

Email the Marriott Administrative Staff at with any questions.

The Marriott Project (STEM Program)

Back for a second year! Explore the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields outdoors! The program includes a mix of Merit Badges, STEM NOVA Venturing Explorations, and activities. Use forensic science to solve an at-camp mystery, explore energy and forces on the COPE course, put your engineering skills to the test building catapults, examine the natural world, and much more! Participants will have the opportunity to earn one of BSA's NOVA Awards.

Trail to Eagle

Trail to Eagle is our most popular provisional program, which offers older scouts the opportunity to enjoy a week of fun, advancement, and growth towards becoming an Eagle Scout. Our camp staff is joined by additional volunteer merit badge counselors who are experts specializing in a particular merit badge. Trail to Eagle gives each scout the opportunity to earn up to 6 Eagle-required Merit Badges and learn valuable leadership skills to bring home to their home troops and communities. This program is designed with a focus on both advancement and development as a leader. We emphasize quality instruction and activities to help the scouts truly become Eagle Scouts.

Beach & Yacht

Come hang out and enjoy the sun at the Camp Marriott waterfront while earning Sailing, Swimming, Lifesaving, Water Sports, and other aquatics merit badge during this week. Our staff of lifeguards is ready to provide a great week of fun and learning. Remember your sunscreen!

Field & Stream

This program is being offered to those Scouts and Venturers who love fishing and shooting. Rifle Shooting, Archery, Trap Shooting, NRA qualification shooting for rifle and shotgun, lake and stream fishing, and other outdoor sportsman skills and activities are featured. Field and Stream is intended to open the door to a lifetime hobby or skill enhancement in the shooting sports and related fields.

General Information


Registration will be online for 2016! More information will be available soon.

Adult Volunteers

Adult volunteer responsibilities involve helping the staff with supervision in the sites and by being advisors to the Scout. Adult volunteers also have the opportunity to teach or assist in teaching a Merit Badge or Skills Workshop. The Skills Workshops supplement the Merit Badges by teaching topics that would be helpful to rising Life and Eagle Scouts, whether it be life skills, troop leadership, or another subject.
