Troop Resident Camping

Come with your troop and enjoy a great week at camp.  Participate in all our great programs, work on merit badges and have some fun at camp.

Resident Camp for Individual Campers

Our Provisional Camp Troop program allows an overnight opportunity for Scouts who can’t go to camp with their troop, or just want more camp time. These Scouts can work on more merit badges or simply enjoy our programs. The camp provides adult leaders with many years of troop experience. If your son wishes to be placed with a particular troop, make arrangements directly with that troop’s leader prior to coming to camp then contact Tom Stoddard at 973-347-3266 or 973-347-2240 one week prior to your son’s arrival. Otherwise, the camp will place your son with an available troop.
