Summer Camp 2018


Rodney Scout Reservation

August 5-11
If you are a 2018 First Year Scout you are not eligible to attend this week of camp

Troop 98 is returning to the shores of the Chesapeake Bay for an awesome week of Scout Camp at Rodney Scout Reservation. Rodney is right at the top of the Chesapeake [MAP].

Besides traditional summer camp merit badges and activities, Rodney has an incredible range of AQUATIC merit badges, including Small Boat Sailing, Motorboating, Water Skiing and Jet Skiing (some of these are age restricted and require you get certification; see the guide).

Cost of camp depends on when you pay:
  • Special Rate for Troop 98: $405 if paid in full by May 25 (received by Troop 98)
  • $425 if paid after May 25
  • $375 if you're attending a full week at another BSA Summer Camp or Philmont

If you can't make it to the scheduled weeks with Troop 98, or if you just can't get enough of Scout camp, you can:
  • attend camp on a "Provisional" basis, which means you can go and stay with another Troop (Ockanickon weeks 1 to 7) or stay in a troop which is formed on the spot with all the other provisional campers (with adult leadership provided by the camp), OR
  • go to camp with another Troop from our District
An extra week of camp gives you all sorts of options, whether it's earning more merit badges, participating in non-badge activities (like Adventure Sports, COPE, and Climbing at Ockanickon or Fawn Run and Paddle-Rama at Resica Falls).
If you've already spent one week at another camp, or will be doing so later in the Summer, you can usually get a great discount on your camp fees for a Provisional week.
So talk to your parents and your friends and decide if you want to take advantage of MORE SCOUT CAMP this coming summer!
See the Scoutmaster for more details or if you have questions.
