The Commissioners program area is designed to help get older Scouts back to Camp and kick-started on finishing up those Eagle-required Merit Badges. It also will motivate and assist them in the continuation of their badges when they return home from Camp.

To take these badges at Wente Scout Reservation, a Scout must be at least 14 years old and Star rank. This policy has been set by the GGAC Advancement Committee. 

The Commissioner Staff is your Troop’s first source to check for answers. Your Camp Commissioner will meet with you daily to see how things are going, follow up on any problems, and help whenever possible. Each Troop will have a Commissioner assigned to them for support throughout the week. Your Commissioner will be your primary program and communications link to Camp personnel.

The Commissioner Staff can:

  • Help you understand the Camp’s program and how to take advantage of its features and solve problems.
  • Help you secure Campsite equipment.
  • Assist your Troop in Scout skill instruction.
  • Develop the leadership skills of your Patrol Leader and Senior Patrol Leader.
  • Help arrange inter-Troop activities such as Campfires, games, etc.
  • Work with Adult Leaders to resolve any problems that may arise during the week.
  • Help and encourage Troop and patrol spirit through development of flags, yells, and songs.


Refer to the current Leader’s Guides for times or costs on all activities.
