This year's choices are:

Loysville, PA (map)

Note: This camp lost by only 2 votes last year

Please watch each camp's video. Also please read each camp's highlights ( taken from 2014 Leaders Guides) All 3 camps offer great programs. The camp costs listed in Summer Camp Highlights are the 2014 prices. Please realize this will most likely increase for the 2015 year. Activities listed are what was offered this summer, and could be subject to change.For further information, check with each camp's Council website.

Voting will take place at the Summer Court of Honor. If your scout is unable to attend the Summer Court of Honor but would still like to vote, please have him email his camp choice to Mr. Ramirez prior to August 21st for his vote to be counted in. Mr. Ramirez's email is bigbearstroop122@aol.com

Summer Camp Lost and Found at Court of Honor

There were numerous items left behind at the campsite, Alex had made an announcement saying that he would leave them in the trailer at the school since no one claimed anything. There were

  • three water bottles
  • first aid kit
  • poncho.

Other items were reported as missing.

We will bring the items to the Summer Court of Honor on 21 Aug and you can claim them at that time. If you have any items that are not yours but came back with you from summer camp, bring them to the Court of Honor.
