We know it's early...very early! But we have to have a head count for Ransburg Scout Reservation by Mid December 2019.

That means we need to know if you plan to join Troop 112 for another Fantastic week of summer camp?!

This camp is just under 3 hours away and has MANY new activities and programs to offer our Scouts. We can't wait to explore this new camp and hope that your scout(and adults too, if able) can share in the experience with us.

The number one reason scouts should attend Summer Camp? It really is a lot of fun! There are many lists out there for why, but they will get to do things they can't do regularly at home. They will get to experience some level of independence in a safe environment.

Its also a great place from earning merit badges and rank advancement!
