Program Areas

New in 2017

Our summer camp program continues to grow year after year.  Recent additions such as the pistol program and knocker ball will continue in 2017.  We are pleased to announce new programs coming in 2017. 


1) The Big Zip

With top speeds of 30 mph, this new program is sure to be a blast for our older scouts at camp this summer.  Must be 13 and over.
















2) Key Log Rolling

Based on a 100-year-old lumberjack sport, spinning atop a floating log will capture the imagination of kids and adults, alike. Log rolling builds physical fitness including balance, coordination, endurance and foot speed. It also strengthens mental focus and concentration. But mostly, it's just fun!
