SUMMER CAMP PROGRAMS
Camp Bashore offers one of the Northeast Region’s finest Boy Scout summer camp programs. The camp offers fresh and exciting programs that appeal to Scouts of all ranks and experience levels, as well as training opportunities and special programs for adult leaders. There’s something for everyone! Here’s just a small overview of what we offer:
BLUE MOUNTAIN MEN — A superb program tailored to the needs of the first-year campers and recent Webelos crossovers.
GREEN BAR PROGRAM — Designed for the Scout in their 2nd+ year, for those who needs a little boost in completing their 1st Class rank requirements. Individually adapted to the specific needs of each Scout.
MERIT BADGE PROGRAM — For those Scouts wanting to earn merit badges. We offer over 50 scheduled merit badge classes and independent study opportunities.
TRAILBLAZER PROGRAM — Designed for the seasoned Scout who is looking for new challenges and some high adventure. With a wide variety of activities (climbing, mountain boarding, 3D archery, biking, tomahawk throwing), we tailor the program to the interests and desires of the older Scouts in the program. Off-site adventure opportunities may include hiking on the Appalachian Trail, mountain biking on local Rail Trails, exercising some mountaineering skills, geocaching, and much more.
ADULT LEADER TRAINING — Aquatics Supervision, Safe Swim/Safety Afloat, Trek Safely, Climb On Safely, Merit Badge Counselor Training, Scoutmaster Specific Training, Youth Protection (online), and Leave No Trace are some of the opportunities offered.
