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. We will be in the Lower Iroquois Site.
2019 Leader's Guide - The leader's 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:
Single Payment Plan
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.
See our summer camp Packing List. To emphasize a few items to bring:
Departure - We will meet at Epworth at 11:15 AM on Sunday to pack our gear into the trailer. We need to arrive at the camp at 1:00 PM. The drive to the camp takes about 70 minutes, so we will leave Epworth at 11:45 AM. Have lunch before coming to the church or bring a bag lunch to eat at the camp (nothing that requires cooking). 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.
Family members can visit on Wednesday evening during our week of camp. If you plan to attend this, you purchase tickets ($8.00 – Adults / $6.00 – Children), either at the Trading Post (expect a long line) or on-line in advance but during the week we are at camp. Visitors will drive to the camp on Upper Jaffrey Road in NH and should expect to be at the camp 6:00-9:00 PM, leaving just after the callout ceremony. Program for this:
You can purchase care packages for Scouts and leaders on-line - just be sure to place your order while we are at camp (not in advance).
