The Triple Crown Award is ready for you to earn!  This award is earned by registered Scouting participants who have camped at least three of our council properties within a calendar year (January 1-December 31).  There are four council properties available for unit camping.


The Triple Crown Award is a camping recognition award of the council’s Order of the Arrow Lodge. 


Those eligible include all registered Scouting participants and their family members.



  1. During a calendar year (January 1—December 31) camp at least one (1) night at all three council properties.  You may earn this more than once.
  2. Any unit (pack, troop, crew, ship), district or council activity can be counted as long as you spend the night at the council property.
  3. All ages of Cub Scouts can participate as part of a Pack Overnighter (see requirements Guide to Safe Scouting: Pack Overnighters).  Webelos may also camp as dens.



Those participants (registered participants and family members) are eligible to purchase the restricted Triple Crown patch through the council Scout Shop.  Proceeds support our OA Lodge.
