Summer Camp: re- Camp Info

Pre-Camp Update:


Scouts can arrive between 12:00 noon and 1:00 PM Sunday for camp check in. When you arrive, go straight to Northrup campsite Once we are all accounted for at our campsite, we will proceed to orientation at the waterfront and dining hall.


Scouts should travel in Class A uniforms, which will also be worn to dinner each evening. Please remember the full uniform including neckerchief, slide or toggle, and green or khaki shorts and belt. Class B uniforms (Scout T Shirt and shorts with belt) are fine for all other times, except waterfront, where a bathing suit and towel are required.  Sturdy shoes are a must - hiking boots are the best option, but sneakers work in a pinch - but save the water shoes/sandals for the water front only! Label all clothing with the scout’s name.  


Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided daily. Please do not bring extra snacks or drinks. Food attracts wildlife to the tents so extra food presents a hazard and will be confiscated if found. Also scouts attending also have nut allergies; please do not put them at risk for a severe reaction. We will provide drinking water and Gatorade at the campsite. We suggest you give your son some money for the camp store where can buy snacks, craft supplies, and camp mementos. Twenty dollars should keep your son in slushies for the week.


A Family Brunch will be held from 9:30 – 10:15 AM on Saturday for parents and guests. Brunch tickets may be purchased during check-in on Sunday or prior to arrival at camp. More info regarding ticket prices. Immediately following breakfast, there will be a recognition ceremony prior to dismissal. If picking up, please plan to join the troop for the ceremony so we can recognize our scouts for the achievements while at camp. Awards ceremony typically ends by 11a.

Mosquito Netting

We have found that mosquito netting is very important for sound sleep. It is available at the scout store in Milford and various other retail outlets. It may be hung via string over the scout’s cot, or may be draped over poles attached to the cot frame. To make the cot poles, simple take four 3 foot dowels and place empty water bottles or tennis balls  on one end (so the netting doesn't tear). These poles are then attached to the cot frame with some tape, and the netting is draped over them.    

Maybe more importantly, the following items are NOT allowed in camp:

·       Cell Phones. Scouts are not allowed to use cell phones in camp.

·       Electronic devices such as radios, video games, pocket televisions, laser pointers, etc.

·       Camouflage clothing

·       Clothing with inappropriate messages/illustrations

·       Open-toed shoes (except within the confines of the waterfront)

·       Alcoholic beverages and illegal drugs

·       Bulk (over one quart) liquid fuel

·       Do not bring food to camp. Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner is provided.

·       Scouts can purchase snacks, shirts, crafts, etc at the Camp Store. $20 for the week should be sufficient.


Most importantly, please bring your best attitude and be ready to have a lot of fun, it is going to be a great week in the woods!
