Troop 54 will attend summer camp at Camp Wanocksett in 2017, our second summer camp here. This is a Nashua Valley Council camp. We are attending Week 2, which runs Sunday, July 9 through Saturday, July 15. Our Scouts will stay in two-man canvas wall tents on wooden platforms. Each Scout will have a cot and mattress. Our site will be determined about one week before we go to camp.
To stay overnight at camp with the troop, an adult must be a registered member of the BSA.
Activities at camp include merit badge sessions, patrol activities and camp activities (such as camp fires). Meals are served in the camp dining hall.
The 2017 Leader's Guide describes many aspects of camp.
Specific merit badges offered at camp are listed in the Leader's Guide. We will need to register for merit badges in advance of our arrival at camp.
Badges earned during Summer Camp will be presented at a Court of Honor in September.
See our summer camp Packing List. To emphasize a few items to bring:
Departure - We will meet at Epworth at 12:00 PM on Sunday to pack our gear into the trailer. We need to arrive at the camp at 1:45 PM. The drive to the camp takes about 70 minutes, so we will leave Epworth at 12:30 PM. Have lunch before coming to the church. Our first camp meal will be dinner.
Return - Our estimated return to Epworth is 12:30 PM on Saturday.
Late arrivals at camp - Advise the Scoutmaster in advance. The troop is expected to show up together.
