Our Western Massachusetts Council camps, Chesterfield Scout Reservation in Chesterfield, MA, & Moses Scout Reservation in Russell, MA, are available for weekend camping by Scouting units during much of the school year. Cabins, shelters, & tenting are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Full payment should accompany all reservation requests to be fair to other Scouting units.
Camp maps, driving directions, camping policies, & other information is available on this website. Comprehensive safety information is available from BSA at www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety.aspx.
Two-deep adult volunteer leadership at a minimum is required, and all campers must follow all Scouting safety standards and camping protocols as outlined by WMC & BSA.
These standards include proper clothing, gear, preparedness, & training for camping, following the Buddy System at all times, age-appropriate activities, and additional safety rules. We urge you to become well-versed in and observe these guidelines.
We wish you a safe, educational, and fun time at our Western Mass. Council camps!
