Camp Ottari is roughly 3.5-4.0 hour drive from Richmond in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Camp Ottari is known for its rugged beauty, large lake, food quality, 800 ft. zip line and no mosquitos. Their merit badge list appears extensive including firearms, small craft boating, handicrafts and an assortment of Eagle required merit badges. Specific merit badge selections will be done in the Spring. 

As with most summer camps, space is filling up fast and we need to get in our initial deposit to reserve our spot . Please sign up here and bring a check for $100 payable to Troop 770 to Tim Owens by the January 14th meeting. Tim will be at the January meetings to answer questions and collect the deposit. 

We will be looking to have 2 adult leaders for the entire week (or 4 for ½ weeks) so please keep this in mind as you plan your summer. 

Please email Tim Owens if you have any questions.
