Scout Summer Camp Parents Guide

Summer camp is often the most memorable experience of a young scout’s summer. Attending camp provides him with valuable opportunities to have fun, explore the great outdoors, meet new people, and learn new skills.

At Henderson Scout Reservation, we’ve been offering a quality outdoor program for boys for over 58 years. Our camp, set on over 630 acres of woodland and a 70 acre lake, offers advancement opportunities for boys in our many program areas, including Aquatics, Nature-conservation, Scoutcraft, Field sports, Indian lore, Fitness, Handicrafts and COPE.

All of this and much more will be waiting for your son at Henderson this summer. So take a look through the camp brochure and at all we have to offer, contact your son’s scoutmaster, and register today!
