Bears in Camp...Oh My!

Welcome to life before the settlers came to America. With a longhouse and a totem pole, Bears will hear the “Beat of the Drum” and feel as though they have stepped back in time. While in this village they will create different crafts, such as dream catchers and choker necklaces. Plus Cub Scouts will learn about the beliefs behind the crafts. A game of lacrosse will sharpen your Native American skills and you will leave with a new appreciation of the Native American culture.

Are you ready for the ultimate camp experience?

Webelos or Arrow Light Scouts will spend 6 fun-filled days learning learn essential survival and pioneering skills that they can take with with them to a Scouts-BSA troop. Groups will participate in outpost trips to some of the most beautiful areas of camp, build their own campsite, and help make the camp a better place with a conservation project.

Camping On Your Own

Want to camp on your own and earn more merit badges? Want to make new friends, meet new Scouts and leaders? Then our provisional camping is for you! Parents and Scout Leaders can sign their Scout up for one of these exciting summer camps:
Youth Protection Course

If, prior to March 1, 2019, you were taking the original Feb. 1, 2018 course on-line and haven't received credit for all three parts and the quiz, you will need to ‘start over’ and take the March 1, 2019 course. This will only effect a very small number of leaders. Of course, we highly recommend everyone to take the updated modules to be completely up to date on what is new in youth protection, but it will only be required once a leader hits the 2 year point. For questions or comments contact Chuck Arnold at 585-469-1462 or scouter.chuckles@gmail.com
