Trading Post and Patches
Camp Trading Posts
How much money should my Scout bring?
The average amount spent per camper last summer was about $50. This allows them to purchase snacks throughout the week and to bring home a souvenir! The Trading Posts function as a great way for scouts to learn to manage their money and make it last the whole week.
- Slushy: $2
- Pop: $1
- Candy: $2
- Ice Cream: $2
- Hats: $15-$22
- T-Shirts: $10-$25
- Sweatshirts: $35-$50
- Pocket Knife: $10-$20
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.
Online Trading Post
In the month of May, we’ll have an online store available for you to preorder items. You'll be able to pay online and pick up the items at camp. With 5 stores, it can be hard to keep a full seasonal stock of apparel and souvenirs throughout the summer. Your pre-orders help ensure the items you want will be there when you get to camp.
Order a Snack Pack and get collectable slushy mug, slushy refills, candy, and ice cream treats.

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
- We'll automatically make a merit badge order for your troop based on what was completed at camp. If you don't wish to have us make an order for you, you can opt out by simply letting us know.
- You can pick up the order on Saturday from Central Services when you checkout
- 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.
- Segments will be available for sale anytime in your camp trading post along with other patches
