Family Resident Camp Weekends

At New England Base Camp in Milton

Enjoy a weekend sharing the Scout camping experience with your whole family. An essential component of the scouting curriculum is family involvement. Not just leaders helping impart skills and life lessons, but parents and families working together to spend time with kids and enjoy the outdoors!

Two overnights will reinforce and teach skills that will equip scouts for future trips and camp-outs. In addition, resident families will participate in activities that take you through all of Base Camp's adventures. All activities that run on any of our Open Saturdays will be open to campers.

Give archery a try and then head over to the axe yard to learn to chop/split and plain a log. Go swimming, try rock climbing, throw a tomahawk, play some gaga ball, test your skills at outdoor cooking and dig up a dinosaur. Indoors, there are oversized chess and dino puzzles as well as activities in the Music Room and STEM Room.



The Campership program seeks to increase the number of Scouts enjoying outdoor experiences at Spirit of Adventure Council camps. This is done by providing financial assistance to our Scouts  who wish to attend one of our programs.

Please fill out the Campership form to apply for financial assistance. If you have any questions while completing the form, do not hesitate to contact Robyn Mellish.
