Base Camp Programs

Weekend Programs!

Weekend Fun Begins at Base Camp!

Join us for our Saturday program! Work on Merit Badges! Either at our main camp in Milton, MA or at Lone Tree in Kingston, NH. From 10:00am- 5:30pm the campground is open for exploring. Come and give archery a try and then head over to the axe yard to learn to chop/split and plain a log. Be sure to save some time to go swimming, try rock climbing, throw a tomahawk, test your skills at outdoor cooking and dig up a dinosaur.

Cub Scout Satellite Programs

If your Den wants to do special programs, you don't have to come all the way to Base Camp! We have five different Satellite locations that run programming specific to each rank: Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears & Webelos. With the Adventure Card (which all cubs have) participating in satellite programs are free! Check out our programs and pick a location near you!
