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.

You Can Also Sign Up for Just the Saturday Programs.
