Parent's Information

"Adventures of a lifetime!"

Summer camp is more than just having fun and earning merit badges


WaterfrontScouts indicate that summer camp is more than just a place to have fun. It also offers Scouts the opportunity to participate in physically and intellectually challenging activities, introduces them to new and rewarding experiences, and provides them with supportive and caring relationships.


Winnebago Scout Reservation is a great camp where your son will grow

Please contact your Scoutmaster for further information about your troop's plans for summer camp at Winnebago. If your troop will not be here this summer, you are welcome to come as an individual Scout.
