Firecrafter BACKGROUND

Firecrafter is a program of camp ranks established in 1920 in the Crossroads of America council.  The program exists only in a few places outside the council.  It was established to promote long-term camping at the council camps.  During the first year of attendance at summer camp, a Scout may earn the rank of Camper.  During his second year of camp, he may earn the rank of Woodsman.  During his third year, and after reaching the age of 13 and the rank of First Class, a Scout may candidate for the rank of Firecrafter during his week at camp.  Following a successful candidacy week, the Scout remains a candidate until he successfully completes the Firecrafter Ritual at either the Mid-Summer Ritual in July or the Grand Ritual in August.  The rank of Minisino is an honorary rank for which a Scout must be nominated.
