2019 Summer Camp

Summer Camp Season is here!





Summer Camp at Camp Drake is a great opportunity to earn merit badges, get camping nights, make new friendships, and make some great memories!  Ask any of the older Scouts about Summer Camp and you will hear some really funny stories about all the great times they've had during their summers at Camp Drake.  It's a really special place.  There are lots of options for our kids during the summer, but I strongly encourage each Scout to spend as many summers as they can at Camp Drake.  They won't regret it!
  • Troop 9 is attending Summer Camp from June 16 - June 22
  • Scouts should select classes and activities from the attached sheet
    • First Year Scouts will participate in the morning Polywog Program and should select classes and activities in the afternoons - stay busy!
