Frequently Asked Questions

Why Build Your Own Summer Camp?

The tradition of building our own summer camp began over 20 years ago, when our Scouts decided that they wanted to experiment with a new summer camp experience. The Scouts decided that they wanted to try to build and run their own camp, an idea that has been tradition ever since. The Scouts love being able to tailor the program to their wants every year, and it offers a leadership experience for them that no other summer camp can provide a troop.

Why Does Summer Camp Cost So Much?

Summer Camp may seem expensive, but the cost is all-inclusive. To help offset the cost, we offer several fundraising opportunities during the year. With these, a Scout is usually able to raise enough to cover not only the cost of summer camp, but also the cost of most troop campouts.

How Do You Run Your Own Summer Camp?

Over the years, we have built up a cache of procedures and equipment to run our summer camps as well as possible. These include UV water filtration systems, generator banks, canopies, custom Patrol handbooks, and highly optimized travel procedures.
