Besides traditional summer camp merit badges and activities, Rodney has a great SAILING program, WHITEWATER merit badge, FLY FISHING and a great COPE Course, and an ATV Rider program.

  • Discount Rate: $380 if paid in full by May 14

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 2 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. For example, a second week of camp at Resica Falls costs $250.
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.
