Years of experience have proven that it is crucial that we maintain a 1 adult: 5 scouts ratio for a positive, safe and productive camp experience -- which means we need minimum 3-4 adults at camp at all times. Please consider volunteering a day, night or more to support our scouts – and have a great time enjoying summer, the outdoors, and camp food! The troop covers the camp cost of adult volunteers.
Please note that health forms are required for any adult staying overnight.
As with scouts, physician signature must be dated after 6/26/22
If you are able to help, or have questions about volunteering, please see Ray or Jeremy. Thank you!
COVID-19 NOTE: Council Prefers Adults attend full week no coming and going.

First Class Path: This is a specialty program recommended for scouts who are attending JNW Boy Scout Camp for the first time (typically scouts who have just crossed over from the Pack). See the description (attached) for the scout skills and badge focus provided.
Trail to Eagle: Trail to Eagle week is a specialty camp for scouts closer to Eagle rank. It's offered at JNW the first week of summer camp. Trail to Eagle (T2E) scouts tent in a campsite with other scouts in the program. Scouts have access to work on several more Eagle-required badges, and can meet with advisors to discuss Eagle projects and other details. There is a $100 discount for attending a second week.

In the outdoors, Scouts have opportunities to acquire skills that make them more self-reliant. They can explore canoe and hiking trails and complete challenges they first thought were beyond their ability. Attributes of good character become part of them as they learn to cooperate to meet outdoor challenges that may include extreme weather, difficult trails and portages, and dealing with nature’s unexpected circumstances.
