COL Mast

This summer, join many other units for the best summer yet at one of the Cradle of Liberty's Scout Reservations. We are proud to offer a wide variety of summer camping programs for units and individual campers. This summer at Resica Falls and Musser we are offering many new programs that will keep your boys wanting more.

 

An important part of ensuring that your troop has a successful summer camp is attending the leaders meeting. During this meeting we go over all of the program and administration details that your troop will need to be able to help your scouts and their families prepare for camp. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MEETING WILL TAKE PLACE ON APRIL 21, 2014 at 7pm at the Valley Forge Middle School. This is a change from the date published in the leader's guide.

COLapexlogo APEX Week at Musser Scout Reservation 

August 3-9, 2014 

This new specialty camp is aimed at offering more advanced merit badges and career exploration than can be offered in a traditional summer camp setting.

The target audience is youth that are looking for a second week of summer camp, likely third year or older. We encourage Boy Scouts, Venturers and Explorers to attend!

To supplement the badge-work and career exploration we will give youth the opportunity to enjoy camp-wide activities and fellowship, including an opening and closing campfire, swimming, boating, rifle shooting and fun games.

With 4,600 acres, over 20 miles of trails and countless scenic overlooks, Resica Falls is the perfect place to spend a week hiking through the woods. With a Philmont-like style of staying at a different camp many nights, and having activities to do once you get to your campsite every day, Scouts are sure to want to come back for more!

A new addition this summer at Resica Falls will be the opportunity for units to experience our In-Site Dining! Units have the option to enjoy their meals delivered to their site, where you can eat in the peace and beauty of the outdoors. This is a great way to spend quality time with your unit. All meals are delivered on a set schedule, so you will eat at the same time as dining hall troops. All eating utensils and supplies are also delivered, so no extra preparation is needed. This method works well to have your meals and relax in your troop site.

An Added advantage for the In-Site Dining Units in 2013 is that you will enjoy the luxury of a new pavilion in each site. Click Here for an In-Site Dining FAQ Sheet to give more details of this program.

For our first year, we have the ability to serve 40 people per week in each of our two new campsites. We are offering this on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to contact Tracy Launders in our Camping Department at (484) 654-9213 to sign up for one of these new campsites.

 


Thank you again for taking the time to ensure that your troop will have a BLAST this summer, and we look forward to seeing you at Resica Falls!
