As the New England Base Camp starts to come into its own, as the first ever public outdoor adventure experience “Powered by Scouting.” We have developed a series of free activities and displays throughout the Egan Center. The displays inspire and encourage and include
- Famous Massachusetts Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts
- Brain puzzles and riddles
- Mammals in the Blue Hills
- What to pack for the outdoors
- Scouting heritage in Massachusetts
- Animal tracks
- 3-D printer
- Science and STEM
- Your New England Adventure!
Number 10 is where you can help!
We are creating a display of Scouts all around New England. Send us your group photo in front of a recognizable New England landmark or while participating in a uniquely New England activity.
The collage above is meant to provide some ideas and shows: a hundred Scouts visiting Battleship Cove, a Girl Scout troop at Fenway, Boy Scouts cycling on the Cape, a troop with their flag atop Mount Washington, a couple troops along the Freedom Trail, a Brownie Troop at Plymouth Plantation, and a Venture Crew whitewater rafting in Maine.
To submit your New England Adventure send a high resolution photo along with a brief description of your adventure. Selected photos will be printed and framed along with a description of your trip. Some items will be displayed on line through social media.
Winning photos will receive a $200 voucher to Base Camp valid throughout 2016. So take a moment, submit your recent New England Scout Adventure here, and start planning your next one!
