We're excited to have over 400 campers at Winter Camp this year! If your Troop is going to 2014 Winter Camp, here are a few things you'll want to do to get ready for camp:
We've posted the Fees and Deadlines for 2014 Winter Camp. The Leader's Guide will publish on 9/1/14.
We're proud to offer Wilderness Medicine at Winter Camp this year. To sign up for this course, please see your Scoutmaster.
The cost of this intensive course is $110, which includes the camping fee for Winter Camp. Attendees are not eligible for any discounts.
The Winter Camp committee announces that the 2014 Winter Camp will be dedicated to the life and memory of devoted scouter Albert Wayne Kissleburg.
Scouts will be transported to a different world where they are divided into tribes, challenged with activities to earn supplies as well as luxury items and presented with a truly unique experience. In our version of survivor high adventure is the goal, and you don ’t get voted of the island!
This isn't going to be a typical merit badge because the Scout is going to be challenged. A little bit of “Lost” and a little bit of “Survivor-Man”. This course will be a restricted course. The Scouts must have attained the rank of First Class or better and must have already completed First-Aid Merit Badge. Preference will be given to those who have Camping Merit Badge. The Scouts who take this merit badge will not be going through the usual round of merit badge classes. They will spend the entire three days at camp on the back side of Camp Preston Hunt in the “Primitive Camping Area” working on their survival skills. Participants of the Winter Camp Wilderness Challenge get the Wilderness Survival Merit Madge as well as receiving the Leave No Trace Trainer Certification.
Scouts wishing to attend this course should come prepared to spend 2 or 3 nights in the wilderness! This will be stressful for some and should not be taken lightly.
There will be an additional $15.00 fee to cover the cost of this intensive course. Registration for the Wilderness Challenge should be completed through your Troop ScoutRegister.com account.
We are looking for a great team to lead our staff and serve our campers for 2014! Here are the open positions that we are working to fill.
If you have any interest in filling these positions, or know someone who could, please contact:
