Trading Post and Patches
Online Trading Post
Tomahawk hosts an online trading post leading up to summer. This is a great way to pre-order items like apparel to ensure it will be there for you when you get to camp. Payment is required online before your order will be confirmed and any items ordered must be picked up at camp.
This summer we have a Collectable Snack Pack. This includes a collectable slushy mug, 5 slushy tickets, 2 candy bars, and 2 ice cream treats. Secure your slushy mug today by submitting a pre-order.
You will also order your merit badges and segments through this online store this summer.

where are they?
Tomahawk has five camp trading posts on the property. There is a trading post available in each sub-camp as well as a camp-wide trading post available at Berglund Center.
What is a Segment?
A segment is a curved patch designed to go around a standard 3-inch in diameter circular patch. A segment is our way of recognizing Scout's achievements made during their time at Tomahawk. Since they recognize and reward Scouts for participation in activities, we use them to encourage Scouts to do activities they normally would not consider doing. Tomahawk Scout Reservation has segments for many of our activities, so some segments are easier to earn than others, allowing anyone to participate!
Many troops make it a tradition to hand out segments alongside their merit badges during a Court of Honor, allowing scouts to be recognized for their achievements made during their week at Tomahawk Scout Reservation.
Merit Badge and Segment Sales
Badge order forms will be available in the Trading Post all week and will be distributed early in the week.
This form is not an exact order. You will most likely return some patches or need to order more.
The badge order form must be handed in to the trading post on Thursday morning to guarantee your order will be ready for pick up by 2 pm on Friday afternoon. A completed advancement report will be needed for the corresponding merit badges and rank advancements upon pick up of your in your sub-camp trading post.
The order will be charged to your ScoutingEvent account. The order will then be reflected on your final bill, which will be paid Saturday morning at check out.
If you need to make any corrections you may do so on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning on your way out of camp.
