Bashore Scout Reservation 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.

SPECIALTY WEEKS — New for 2017, Bashore is offering three different specialty weeks, designed for the seasoned Scout who is looking for new challenges and some high adventure. Their choices are BSA Life Guard Week (Weeks 1 or 4), Search, Rescue, and Survive Week (Weeks 2 or 5), and Cycling Week (Weeks 3 or 7). Older Scouts may either attend provisionally, or they may attend with their troop. Each of the specialty weeks runs parallel to the regular camp activities. See the Older Scout Program description for more information. (These specialty weeks replace the former Trailblazer program.)

ADULT LEADER TRAINING — Aquatics Supervision, Safe Swim/Safety Afloat, Climb On Safely, Merit Badge Counselor Training, Scoutmaster Specific Training, Youth Protection (online), and Leave No Trace are some of the opportunities offered.
