On July 16, 2016, Troop 3 Milton came home to T.L. Storer.  The troop had not attended a summer camp there in twelve years...We had a successful camp, several scouts advanced in rank, and lots of merit badges were earned. The Troop scouts and leaders decided that it was good to be home again.

New England Adventure Card

Two Levels of Adventure to Choose From

Bringing outdoor experiences at eight locations in Eastern MA and NH to your child, family, or group with built-in value to fit in any budget.

Locations and Registrations LIVE 8/22/16

"What the card will do for us is open up those missed opportunities... We can avoid the weekends where we struggle with “Tablet time/Screen time” and our son and daughter can make New England Base Camp their second 'outdoor' home."
