Resident Camps

Stay an extra week at camp or stay for 3 weeks or 5 weeks! NeXus Resident Camps are designed as a continuous adventure where every week is special and can provide family solutions for working parents who are seeking options for summer care. Camp Gilwell at T.L. Storer and Camp Shanawanda at Wah-Tut-Ca.

Each week offers different programs that include in-camp and out-of-camp adventures. Programs offered include climbing and hiking local mountains and canoeing on the Merrimack or Suncook Rivers. Special bicycle programs, fishing expeditions, horseback riding and STEM programs are offered along with in-camp activities for resident campers only.

As a NeXus Resident Camper, your Scout is a V.I.P. Campers stay in special housing designed for long-term residence with access to showers and flush latrines. Gilwell & Shanawanda is staffed by trained and experienced adult and junior counselors.

Your up to six -week options can include spending one week with your Troop or additional weeks in Council Leadership Programs such as Brownsea or  NYLT. You can even mix and match your weeks between Shanawanda at Wah-Tut-Ca and Camp Gilwell at TL Storer!

We recommend 3 WEEKS- Half Summer or 5  WEEKS-FULL SUMMER. You can stay as many weeks as you like. This includes Saturday Overnight Programs.

Boys and girls have the opportunity to acquire skills and advance in areas such as Animals, Nature, Fitness, Sports, Aquatics, Shooting Sports, Pioneering, Camping & Cooking.
