Camping Opportunities in
A proud tradition of adventure and excitement in the outdoors has
been Goose Pond's from the first campers in 1920 to the Scouts
who walked through the gates just last year.
At Goose Pond, you will find something for everyone, from the
newest Tenderfoot to the most intense Eagle. From Pathways to
merit badges to the C.O.P.E. course and Voyager program for
the elite outdoorsmen, there's an exciting adventure ready for you.
Get ready to travel to the land of “Knights & Dragons” at Camp Acahela this summer! There are two exciting Cub Scout overnight camping opportunities to choose from running 5 different weeks starting in June.
Week-Long is a 6-Day 5-Night stay designed for those Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts who are prepared to camp overnight! Boys will stay with their friends in large canvas wall tents on raised platforms.
3-Day Adventure - If six days is too long, how about trying 3-Day Adventure Camp? It begins on Sunday and everyone leaves on Tuesday after the closing.
Get ready for a week of outdoor fun being held two different weeks
at two different locations - with one near you.
Day Camp is a daytime or evening outdoor program conducted over
5 days. Cub Scouts will be challenged by lots of activities that may include: nature, hiking, sports, fishing, games, archery, swimming,
and much more!
Parent and Pal Weekend is designed for spending one-on-one quality time with your son. It is the perfect 24-hour program for new or experienced campers.
Moms and Dads, legal guardians, or adult relatives can attend with their Scout. The adventure begins Saturday morning and ends Sunday morning after breakfast. Four weekends to choose from!
