Summer Programs

Outdoor adventure is the promise made to boys when they join Scouting. Boys yearn for outdoor programs that stir their imagination and interest.

In the outdoors, boys have opportunities to acquire skills that make them more self-reliant. They can explore canoe and hiking trails and complete challenges they first thought were beyond their ability. Attributes of good character become part of a boy as he learns to cooperate to meet outdoor challenges that may include extreme weather, difficult trails and portages, and dealing with nature's unexpected circumstances.

Scouts plan and carry out activities with thoughtful guidance from their Scoutmaster and other adult leaders. Good youth leadership, communication, and teamwork enable them to achieve goals they have set for themselves, their patrol or squad, and their troop or team.

* Plans for normal summer camp operations remain in effect. Individual camper deposits for Scouts BSA summer camp at Henson and Rodney Scout Reservations were due by February 1, or at the time of registration for all new sign-ups. Final payments are due May 1st. Please refer to the promotional information for individual Cub Scout summer camp payment deadlines. Payment deadlines remain in place and are vital to providing a safe and enjoyable summer camp experience. The camper deposit has been considered non-refundable. For 2020 summer camps, we will consider the camper deposit as refundable if government authorities  mandate the closure of summer camps.
