Summer Camp


     Summer Camp is approaching quicker than you think, and space is running out at the Buckskin Scout Reservation and Camp Chief Logan summer camp programs. If your unit has not completed the registration process, then someone from your unit needs to fill out your reservation forms and pay the site deposit as soon as possible! The Leaders’ Guide and details concerning opportunities' available at our our two camps are available on the summer camp pages ( Buckskin Scout Reservation Summer Camp and Camp Chief Logan Summer Camp ) and from the council service center. Please encourage all of your Scouts and leaders to attend Summer Camp this upcoming summer. The experiences a young man receives at Boy Scout Summer Camp will last a lifetime. Please take a few minutes in your next meeting to talk about summer camp and let parents know about the activities, costs, and dates associated with camp.
