Cole Canoe Base Scout Camp

Calling ALL Scouts in Troop 33!

Troop 33 will be attending Summer Camp at Cole Canoe Base this summer.  Same basic program as Camp Gerber, just a different location.

WHEN:  Saturday, July 20 - Saturday, July 27

First Year Scouts (FYS)  (those Scouts that cross over from Webelos to Boy Scouts in 2019) can take part in a special program that will cover the "basics" of Boy Scouting, including making SIGNIFICANT progress in the Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class ranks.  (FYS are STRONGLY encouraged to attend camp for this reason -- it is not easy to attain the rank requirements with regular Scout meetings).

Older Scouts will be able to choose from the MANY Merit Badges available at Cole Canoe Base (more than Gerber had!).  The list is here:

Payment Schedule: TO BE UPDATED WITH 2019 DATES SOON


Scouts:  $375 ($330 for camp + $45 for transportation and firewood) total if camp portion is paid by 4/24 (increases to $390 after that date)
