Our meals are planned and prepared by our year-round in-house food service manager to ensure some of the best food you will ever have at a Scout camp!



Summer Camp 
is a traditional Boy Scout Activity where 
Scouts have an opportunity to earn merit badges that they
will need for Eagle as well as learn many Scout skills and have a great week with friends. Typically, the Troop spends a week during the summer at an organized Boy Scout Camp with other Troops from the local area and around the region.  

Scouts stay in two-man tents, eat at the dining hall, and attend merit badge courses.  This is a great opportunity for Scouts to earn merit badges in order to advance. Younger Scouts also may work on advancement.  There are also opportunities for older Scouts to do other things, like ropes courses, week-long backpacking or sailing treks, and other high Adventure activities.





Check out the opportunities for High Adventure camp for next summer.  You can go on your own and join other Scouts from around the Country and around the world at BSA High Adventure Camps!

Troop 770 Scouts are participating in a 
June, 2016 trip to Philmont Scout Ranch to backpack for 12 days in the New Mexico wilderness.
