Who Can Attend?

Come with your pack, troop, crew or even your family! You can also come by yourself for the day program or be a part of a overnight provisional unit supported by our adult leadership. New in 2021, we began offering programs for families. Learn more here!

  • BSA only allows Lions to attend summer family, not summer day or resident camp.
  • BSA requires Tigers to have an adult partner for day, resident, and family camp.
  • We require Wolves attending resident camp provisionally (not attending with their Pack) to have a responsible adult and recommend the same for Bears.

 

How Long Does Camp Run?

There are three options for when anyone, regardless of program, can attend each week:

Full Week Resident Camp

    Runs from Sunday, 11:00 am to Saturday, 10:00 am.

Short Week Resident Camp

     Has two sessions each week:

          A: Sunday, 11:00 am to Wednesday, 5:00 pm.

          B: Wednesday, 8:30 am to Saturday, 10:00 am.

Day Program Only

      Runs Monday - Friday each week from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.

 

What Will I Be Able To Do?

We are preparing a very flexible program centered on fun activities that will let:

      Cub Scouts work on requirements for their Adventures,

      Newer Scouts BSA work on requirements for Scout through First Class ranks,

      Scouts BSA work on requirements for merit badges,

      Venturers/Sea Scouts work on skills to support their interests,

      Everyone have fun!!!!

How Do I Register?

To register for camp, click the appropriate button(s) for the week(s) that you would like to attend. Please note the following:

1. Units need to use the established account in Tentaroo to register and submit all payments as a unit. Individual payments by members of your unit will not be accepted. Units may also register their provisional, day program, and CIT campers using their Unit Account. Do not create your own account! If you do not know your unit's login information, please contact the Council Service Center at 413-594-9196 ext 7032.

2. Individuals/Families may need to create an account to register and submit payments as a Counselor-in-Training (CIT), a Provisional Camper, a Day Program Camper, or a Family Camping Adult, if their own unit will not be managing these registrations for them.

3. There are many categories to choose from when indicating how many youth/adults will be attending. Please carefully select the appropriate categories for the camp you wish to attend. For example, you would select Scouts BSA Youth - Full Week for Scouts that will be attending a full week of camp with their troop. A complete listing of the categories and when to use them appears in the Summer Camp Registration document (available below). If in doubt, please contact the Council Service Center at 413-594-9196 ext 7032.

 

Annual Health and Medical Records

The required BSA medical forms are available online at https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/ahmr/. Parts A & B, as well as a copy of both sides of one's health insurance card, are required from all camp attendees and staff.

Part C is required for anyone who will be at camp for 72+ hours cumulatively and requires a pre-participation physical completed within 12 months of participation dates.

These medical forms must be submitted to the camp health officer no later than one week prior to arrival to be reviewed for completion; to ensure camp health, food service, and program staff are prepared to support individual needs; and to allow for a timely check in for units and individuals.
