"Everything is getting shaken up this summer at the Northern NeXus of Adventure including our new approach to Counselors-in-Training...this course was built to surpass that experience in every way imaginable."

Summer Camp 2016

Northern NeXus of Adventure combines our outdoor camps and facilities into a dynamic menu of opportunities, recognizing that one size does not fit all needs.

Working together, three camps will highlight their natural features and build upon their past successes. We envision the close proximity of Wah-Tut-Ca, T.L. Storer and Parker Mountain as a strategic advantage.

Join us this summer to experience the adventure!

SOAR 2016

October 8-10 2016

Get ready for two full days in October 2016 that will celebrate the tradition and future of Scouting like never before.

Prepare for the greatest event of its kind in Scouting’s history. It all happens when you, your Unit, and your family members, pitch your tents on the Banks of the Charles along with thousands of other Scouts an adventure is sure to follow.

Day Camps

Scouting and the outdoors are necessarily linked: the natural world is such a wonderful classroom, laboratory, and gymnasium, making it capable of generating ideas and stimulating everyone who engages with its splendor.

Spirit of Adventure Day Camps are for Boys and Girls ages 6-10 who have completed kindergarten, but not yet entered the sixth grade.


We serve 18,000 youth and adult members between the ages of 6 - 100.

With that vast diversity, communication is always a challenge. The best communication provides everyone an opportunity to share their voice and a transparent decision making process.

Through the use of our blogs, social media and magazines we encourage every member of the Scouting to join the conversation and catch the Spirit of Scouting!
