This year, Troop 54 will attend summer camp at Camp Wanocksett. The last time we attended summer camp there, in 2017, it was an out-of-council camp for us; following the merger to form the Heart of New England Council, it is an in-council camp. Our Scouts will stay in two-person canvas wall tents on wooden platforms; each Scout will have a cot. Meals will be prepared by the camp and served in their dining hall. Our site will be determined about one week before we go to camp.
2019 Leader's Guide - The leader guide should give you a good idea how this camp is run.
Youth registration fee can be paid through an installment plan or a single payment as follows:

See additional details.
Activities at camp include merit badge sessions, patrol activities and camp activities (such as camp fires).
Most of the merit badge information is included in the Leader's Guide. The camp has changed a number of its merit badge offerings this year. Separate merit badge information will be available later. Scouts are expected to sign up for their badges in advance. The camp commits to giving every Scout his first merit badge choice (although not necessarily at the chosen time).
Badges earned during Summer Camp will be presented at a Court of Honor in September.
Departure - We will meet at Epworth at 12:00 PM on Sunday to pack our gear into the trailer. We need to arrive at the camp at 2:00 PM. The drive to the camp takes about 70 minutes, so we will leave Epworth at 12:45 PM. Have lunch before coming to the church. Our first camp meal will be dinner.
Return - Our estimated return to Epworth is 12:00 PM on Saturday.
Late arrivals at camp - Advise the Scoutmaster in advance. The troop is expected to show up together.
