The Troop will be going to Camp Read Scout Reservation from July 21 – 27 for Summer Camp.
We will be staying at Camp Buckskin with the Dining Hall option.
Please review the Parent Guide from Camp Read. There is a lot of information about the Camp and what they offer.
They offer 6 merit badge periods; First Year Camper Program; Adirondack Challenge (Older Scouts); In-Camp and Out-of-Camp Activities.
Remember Summer Camp is not only about Merit Badges.
Please visit the camp webpage - www.wpcbsa.org/Read
Merit Badge Program Information:
There are two camps within the reservation – Buckskin and Waubeeka.
When looking at the schedules note which camp the merit badge is offered.
Recommend the First Year Program for new Scouts.
Scouts 14 and older can participate in Adirondack Challenge during the afternoon.
Review the Camp Activities for other non-merit badge options.
Talk to other Scouts going to camp and see if there is interest in group activities.
Sign-up for merit badges and activities opens April 1.
Camp Cost is $445
$50 deposit is needed by March 25
Monies from the Oktoberfest will be divided based on number submitting deposits and cross-over scouts attending.
Remaining balance will need to be paid by May 10.
Meet at the VFW
