Camps, Summer 2018

The Troop always attends summer camp together at Camp Yawgoog in Rhode Island for a full week of fun and merit badge work.  The Troop tries to get week 2 every year.  In 2018 it will fall on July 8 - 15th.  We encourage all scouts to attend, even new crossovers.  It is a great way for scouts to have fun and enjoy each other while working on and practicing scouting skills.  (Click on Blue links for more information)

During the 2018 year, scouts can attend a variety of vacation camps and attend other summer camps in addition to Yawgoog.  Spirit of Adventure Council has an "adventure card" for yearly purchase that will give you 20% off all S.O.A. camps.  This is a great way to earn merit badges, practice scouting skills and have fun.
