Summer camp programs are designed for Boy Scouts and Venturers who want to achieve advancement by earning merit badges and learning Scouting skills. This is an opportunity for Scouts to work on various "outdoor" merit badges and to have fun by participating in numerous activities.  Summer Camp offers many activities and resources such as canoes, rowboats, or archery and rifle ranges, and many of the other outdoor resources required for advancement in Scouting.

Adult Leader Volunteer Support Program

New for 2023, there is an "Adult Leader Volunteer Support" program.  This program allows an adult to volunteer 12-16 hours of service while at camp.  This will help support various key roles the camp needs (teach merit badges, support various programs, etc).   As a thank you for your service, they are offering a free adult camp membership for the 2024 camping season ($175 and can be used for any adult).  There is an application process, and the applications must be submitted by 4/21/2023.  If interested in applying, please click the icon to request additional information.  (Note:  there is a limit of 3 adult leaders per unit for this program.)
