Varsity Programs

Varsity Scouts don't work on merit badges as a primary focus.  They work on the following programs and then use these to also accomplish merit badges then need for Eagle.  Some of them seem a bit outdated and are regional specific (i.e. - How do I teach my boys to cross country ski or snow camping in Texas?  I can't even train them here and then go to those climates for an activity.  We have had 70+ days of 100+ degrees this summer!) but I think there is a wide variety.  Varsity doesn't just have to stick to these.  They can create their own!  This is what I love about the program!
