SUMMER CAMP IS HAPPENING!
This is so exciting it’s worth repeating… Scouts will be able to attend summer camp this year! Massawepie Scout Camps, Camp Babcock-Hovey, and Cub Scout Adventure Camp at J. Warren Scout Reservation have already started accepting reservations.

As we continue to get guidance from the New York Department of Health on what testing, monitoring, and procedures will be required for our staff and campers we will communicate it out to Scouts and Scout Leaders.
Register Now for Camp! With the eagerness many will have to get to camp after the long-year away, our camps will fill up quickly!
