Working with Summer Camp

If at Sunday check-in you run into a problem, don't force anything through, send a detailed message to and we will reach out first thing on Monday to help answer your questions.

Welcome to the Working With Summer Camp Video Series! This is a series of helpful videos to guide you through a better summer camp experience using Tentaroo.

Additional Resources Not Covered in Video Series:

Requirement Tracking - An important topic that is not covered in the video series below is setting up Requirements Taught at Camp. Prior to summer camp and other merit badge events, councils will want to set the requirements being taught at camp. Councils can also share the Scoutbook Import instructions with their units on the User Guide.
