2020 Scouts BSA Specialty Camps

Many Scouts first experience summer camp with their Troop. Joining your Troop for summer camp is a great time and every Scout should try to camp with their Troop. There are, however, additional camping opportunities offered at Baiting Hollow to help a Scout round out their camping experience or help advance in rank.

 

Bridge Camp  - Day Camp program

 

During Bridge Camp, Scouts will work on Mammal Study and Basketry merit badges. In addition to the merit badges, they will work on first-year camper skills, and have an opportunity to enjoy the waterfront, climbing tower, and shooting ranges. As a side note, Scouts under the age of 12, which is probably all of our bridge campers, cannot shoot the .22 rifles at the Rifle Range under NYS Law. Our Shooting Sports director has some great alternatives for them that includes air rifles. 

Bridge Camp runs Monday thru Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm. Lunch is provided each day.  Scroll down to register.
