Troop 167 Summer Camp Information

All the scouts in our troop are strongly encouraged to attend at least one summer camp.

Not only is it fun, but scouts will earn Merit Badges, bond with their fellow scouts, and younger scouts get a good jump on compleating their requirements toward First Class. We need you to sign up as soon as possible. We need a rough headcount now, so the summer camp staff can plan accordingly!

$100 Deposits Due March 06th! This is for any summer camp registration!

Camp Discounts:

$25 Brother Discount, each scout
$25 Scout attending a second week of camp in Council (Babcock Hovey, Massawepie, NYLT)

If financial aid is needed, council does have campership money available to pay typically half of the camp fee. See your Scoutmaster or Committee Chair for more information, or contact Council directly. Council would like all applications in by April 10th.

Camp Babcock-Hovey
July 12-17
Cost: $350 (includes camp T-shirt, and food for one meal cooked in the campsite)

This is an ideal summer camp for younger scouts, featuring a dining hall for meals, merit badge sessions in the morning and a Tenderfoot to First class program in the afternoon. There will also be the opportunity to earn the Toten' Chip or Fireman's Chit, as well as one of a few additional merit badges as well. Order scouts are also welcome, and will be able to plan their own afternoon program.

Note: The price will go up by $25 on May 8th.

Camp Massawepie
July 19-25
Cost: $370

Massawepie is located Between Cranberry Lake and Long Lake in the heart of the Adirondack Park, New York. At Massawepie you can canoe, kayak or sail on a mile-long private lake, hike on 20 miles of trails, and camp among eight other ponds without ever leaving camp property.

This is a camp for older scouts, featuring a dining hall instead of patrol cooking, merit badge sessions and perhaps an adventure trek or two.

Requirements: Scouts not yet 1st Class require Scoutmaster approval... easy if you have previous Scout troop camping experience

Note: The price will go up by $25 on May 8th.
