Camp PMI at Goshen Scout Reservation
National Capital Area Council  |  Goshen Reservation  |  Camp PMI

What is Goshen?
  • Goshen Scout Reservation is the premiere summer camp experience for Webelos scouts in our area.
  • This is a Webelos 1 and 2 event only, which we attend as a Pack.
  • It is an entire week (Sunday-Saturday) of campfires, swimming, archery, BB guns, camp crafting, hiking, whittling, and nature.  In other words, a 9 or 10 year old boy's dream week.
  • Attending Goshen is a great way to get ahead on Arrow of Light activities.
  • Goshen Reservation actually consists of six separate Camps. We will typically be at Camp PMI. This is about 3.5 hours from Arlington.
  • We only need a ratio of 3 to 5 scouts per parent. This camp experience has proven to be very popular with parents as well.
  • The Webelos week(s) at Goshen is the pinnacle of Cub Scouting.
Cost For Camp PMI
  • The full price for 2018 was $360 per Scout, and $225 per adult.
  • Camperships are available for any family that cannot afford the cost or camping gear - please reach out to the Treasurer.
  • Pack 167 typically pushes for early registration by mid-April. This helps us to get the best rates possible, and to have our pick of weeks. Later registration will increase the fees above by $40.
General Information about this Camp
  • Campers arrive mid-day on Sunday, and leave very, very, very early on Saturday morning.
  • No tents required - all campers sleep in A-Frame tents on platforms. Two campers per tent.
  • Definitely bring sleeping bags and a camp bed pad if you have one.
  • There is a small camp store.  The boys will visit often for Jiffy Pop, walking sticks, ice cream, tee shirts, and <gasp> pocketknives.  If they earn or bring their Whittlin Chip, of course.  So please send them with a bit of money.
  • Activities for the first two days are planned for us in advance. We will submit our desired camping program on the first day, and will get our assignments for the rest of the week on Tuesday.
  • Though Scouts will earn achievements, pins, and awards, that's not the focus for the week. The focus is on doing fun stuff that Webelos like.
