Trades Week


For one week only, Tomahawk will be offering a Trades Week. It is NOT a traditional week with the troop or crew. This program is focused on trade skills like welding, woodworking, and more. Space is limited to 12 participants.

Similar to the All-Star program, Scouts and Venturers can register as individuals, and camp staff will serve as the adult leadership within a site, or Scouts can return to their unit’s campsite at night, if their unit is in camp that week.

The Trades Week fee is $295 for the week; this includes all meals, equipment and program. The fee does not include transportation. Participants will receive a special recognition patch. Return this registration form with $50 per participant to reserve your spot. The balance will be due by June 1. The program requires a minimum of 10 participants. If the minimum is not met, all fees paid will be refunded.
