June 15th is the deadline for campership applications, so don't wait and fill out a Campership Application today to apply for financial assistance to allow your Scouts to go to camp.
Sign up for Escape Camp by tomorrow to allow the council to move forward with planning or plan for alternative future events. Unfortunately, due to lack of sign ups the council cannot run the second Escape Camp weekend (7/23/21-7/25/21) sustainably. For those who have turned in Campership Applications, you still need to register for the event to have the Campership funding applied towards the event.
If you plan on attending camp, please sign up before June 15th to allow us to plan for your attendance.

Troop 44 of Clark Mills got the need for speed during their annual spring trip as they attended the running of the Indianapolis 500. The unit trip also included camping at Camp Belzer and a day at Goodtimes Fun Park where they enjoyed indoor games, mini-golf, and go-cart racing. Naturally Troop 44 came racing back home with high hopes for their next trip. Troop 44 Scoutmaster Dodson said that Troop 44's next "Spring 2022 trip will be an adventure to Boston."

If your up for adventures like this and more, then go to and get out and Scout!
