Troop 933 attends Summer Camp each year at Seven Ranges Scout Reservation (7R). 7R is located in Carroll County, approximately an hour away. It is a week spent in nature, away from the world, learning new skills, making new friends, and honoring the past.
It is hard.
It is fun.
It is challenging.
It is rewarding.
It can be a life changing event.
But mostly, it is fun!

Prerequisites for Merit Badges. Some Merit Badges the Scouts will take have prerequisites that must be completed at home before camp. They are then brought to camp and shown to the counselor, or signed off on by the Scouts leader. See the specific Pre-req’s for your Merit Badges.

Pipestone Camp Honors. Please visit this link for information on the meaning, purpose, and history of 7R’s Camp Honors program. Pipestone Camp Honors Contrary to what your Scout or his friends may have heard, your Scout IS ALLOWED to talk about the program ceremony with you. They are NOT to talk about it with younger Scouts, so that the mystery and mystique are not taken away from the younger Scout. Scouts must bring a bundle of wood as part of their requirements for the Camp Honors program. They must gather one cubic foot of wood, which is approximately a full milk crate of wood.
From the Summer Camp Leaders Guide:
“Wood should be straight, about 12″ to 16″ long, no thinner than your little finger and no thicker than your thumb… the Scout gathers one cubic foot of dry, naturally barkless wood.”
See a senior Scout for ideas on how to find the wood. ALL wood must be inspected by the Senior Patrol Leader or the Scouts he designates at a Troop meeting before camp.
