Summer Camp - Ten Mile River Scout Camp


It is NEVER TOO EARLY to start thinking about summer camp.

Troop 197 will be going to Ten Mile River located in Monticello, NY on Sunday August 6th, 2017 and will return Saturday August 12th,2017.

The early bird cost is due mid May, the cost includes all camping and program fees as well as 3x meals per day for the week, after that date, the cost will be $30-$50 higher. The troop will not be providing transportation however we will work to coordinate the parents who are able driving so everyone is able to attend.    

During the week your son will have the opportunity to complete merit badges that they may not otherwise be able to complete during our regular meetings.  They can take advantage of the various program  areas to work on scout skills required for their rank advancement and will learn how to safely and properly cook and clean. 

For any new scouts who have not attended TMR I suggest visiting their web site at to see all of the programs and activities that are available.  Older scouts who have completed the merit badges should consider taking advantage of the high adventure program. 

On Thursday of the camping weekyour son will have an opportunity to experience a rafting trip down theDelaware river, this year we will be heading several miles up stream toan area we have not taken in prior years.  This is an additional cost ofapprox $35.00.

When we depart TMR we will bestopping for a Pizza party, this is also an additional cost of approx$10.00 pp based on the # of people.

Parents interested in attending the TMR for the week should contact the Scoutmaster.   Parents of any scouts who have never attended TMR please feel free to contact the Scoutmaster via email or at any of our Tuesday meetings so we can further review and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
