BOY SCOUT PROGRAM

Boy Scouts can participate in the largest annual International Scouting event, the annual Jamboree-on-the-Air or JOTA.  Each year SPARK Lodge opens up for JOTA all day for the event.  JOTA is always the third full weekend of October each year.  Be sure to check our Schedule for the exact date that SPARK will be open.  Scouts on there own can participate for as long as they want in the activities.  Scouting units should be mindful that we will see a lot of other units during the day and we want to be sure to get all of the Scouts who come out for JOTA on the air talking to someone somewhere.

The SPARK Lodge Amateur Radio Club offers merit badge courses in radio, computers, electricity, electronics, and weather.

Provisional courses are offered in the spring and the fall.  Courses for units of 4 or more Scouts are generally scheduled separately.

The courses are offered at SPARK Lodge at Camp Delmont on the Musser Scout Reservation (directions).  They are held on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to about 4:00 PM.  A registration fee of $5.00 is charged per Scout per course and supports the program at SPARK Lodge. Notebooks and pens/pencils will be needed but merit badge books, while helpful, are not required.

Scouts attending a provisional course need to provide their own transportation and brown-bag lunch.   Units desiring to camp on the Musser Scout Reservation need to make camping reservations with the Cradle of Liberty Council.

The Scout uniform is appropriate attire for all courses.


Scouts desiring to attend a provisional course should fill out and submit the application form.

Troop leaders desiring to schedule a troop course may do so if and only if your troop is camping at Camp Delmont, Musser Scout Reservation  should:

  1. Check our schedule for an open date or one that is listed as Camp Program, and
  2. Make arrangements for the troop course well in advance of your troop camping trip at Delmont with Rick@k3bsa.org
