2013 Summer Camping Opportunities
"A week of camp life is worth six months of theoretical teaching in the meeting room." - Lord Baden-Powell
Ask any Scouting Alumi what their favorite experience was when they were a Scout and you're likely to getting a story about camp. Summer camp is where is all comes together. Scouts get the chance to apply the skills they have learned, learn new skills, practice leadership and teamwork, and just have a blast! The experience is like no other.
The Western Massachusetts Council is proud to offer summer camping opportunities at Cub Scout Day Camp, Cub Scout Resident Camp, Boy Scout Resident Camp, AdVenture Week (co-ed), NYLT or National Youth Leadership Training (co-ed), the Order of the Arrow's Pocumtuc Experience, and the 2013 National Jamboree.
More information for each program can be found under the "Camping" tab above.
