Patriots’ Path Council is proud to offer many year-round activities and facilities for rent.

Backwoods Engineering at Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation is an awesome year-round program where Scouts, non-Scouts, and Units can practice pioneering skills and learn engineering principles. Participants have a great time while building large and exciting pioneering projects. Some of what we build includes towers, large bridges, cranes, paddlewheel rafts, aerial runways, trebuchets, and lots more.

Eagle’s Nest, located at Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation, is an area focused on mentorship style merit badges. Traditionally badges are conducted through group sessions where multiple Scouts work on requirements in a structured environment. Eagle’s Nest requires Scouts to work on their own, offering opportunities for exploration and research on a topic not normally available in structured sessions. Experienced Merit Badge Counselors are available to guide Scouts through their badge’s topic while adding instruction and supporting personal interests.

You don’t need to be a Scout to enjoy our outstanding programs! We offer activities at Mount Allamuchy Scout Reservation in Stanhope, NJ and Winnebago Scout Reservation in Rockaway, NJ. Both camps are accredited by the Boy Scouts of America.
