2020 Virtual Summer Camp

The Pennsylvania Dutch Council and Camp Mack Staff are excited to announce our virtual camp for July 2020!

What is virtual camp?

Virtual camp is a way to bring the camping experience to your home so our “campers” can continue in their scouting journey. While there will be some live sessions for whole camp activities, there will also be sessions that are recorded; so families have flexibility for participating in adventures on their own schedule.

When is virtual camp?

Virtual camp will take place July 27-31. We’re still working on a “schedule,” but we’re planning online sessions starting at 9 am, with the other sessions recorded to complete whenever works for your scout. We want scouts to take a break from their screens as well, so go outside and enjoy the summer!

How much does virtual camp cost?

The cost for camp is $50.00. This will include a “camp in a box” that will help your scout complete the adventures that we’re offering for the week. There will be some household items that you may need to get ahead of time, stay tuned for an adult guide with those details soon!

How do I participate in virtual camp?

Registration opens July 1 and will close on July 15. Scouts will have the option to either pick up their materials at Camp Mack, the Pennsylvania Dutch Council Service Center, or have it shipped to their home. We will contact participants with times to pick up materials.
