The Nashua Valley Council, BSA, has been supporting local North Central Massachusetts’s Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Venturing crews, Explorer posts, and in-school character education programs since 1965. This year we celebrated our 90th Anniversary of Boy Scout resident camp at Camp Wanocksett!  In order to serve the more than 3,700 youth of Nashua Valley Council, provide outstanding outdoor camping and program facilities at Camp Split Rock and Camp Wanocksett, provide advancement, training, recruitment support, a Scout Service Center, and much more, we need the support of each of our Scouting families.

Many families have already responded to our 2014 appeal for support. Between January and May, our volunteers visited almost all of our Scouting units to make a brief presentation about Scouting in our area and the importance of members’ support. If you were one of the many families that made a pledge of support, THANK YOU!  Because of your support, and our own careful fiscal stewardship, we are very close to ending the year with a balanced budget. Continued support from our families is critical. If we happened to miss you, or you are able to make an additional year-end contribution, please consider donating today online. 

In order for the Nashua Valley Council to support each youth with the above services and more, a minimum necessary contribution of $35 per Scout is required. If you feel that Scouting is making a strong impact in your community and the lives of our youth, please support the program at whatever level you can. The actual cost to support one Scout per year in the program is $135. All donations are 100% tax-deductible and as a thank you for gifts over $135, a commemorative patch will be mailed to you in celebration of Camp Wanocksett's 90th Anniversary.  

The commitment that you make today will help to make Scouting in Nashua Valley Council financially secure, and will help to ensure that Scouting is strong, growing and relevant in North Central Massachusetts for the next 100 years! We can think of no more important investment!  Thank you for supporting Nashua Valley Council, and Scouting!

We need your help! We all know that Camp Wanocksett is one of the premier Scout camps in the Northeast. Camp Split Rock hosts our Cub Scout Day Camp and many of our off-season training programs. What many of our visitors may not realize is that it takes a huge effort on the part of our volunteers, between September and June, to keep up with the routine maintenance and new projects that help keep these camps in the front of the pack.

Thanks to grants from the Magee Foundation, financial support from our communities, and the success of our summer camp program, we have had major building projects at both Camp Wanocksett and Camp Split Rock every year for the last decade. We’ve built three new composting restrooms, a new shower house, a climbing tower, new staff housing, rebuilt the high ropes course, replaced roofs, doors, and windows, and completed major structural repairs on several aging buildings. We’ve done all of this, almost entirely, with volunteer labor.

We’re not done yet!

An Overnight at the Museum of Science is a special program that inspires children, to discover science in an entertaining, educational, and interactive way. A typical Camp-In includes a variety of hands-on science activities, science demonstrations, a late night show, a morning activity, an Omni show, and time to explore the Museum with chaperones. Camp-In instructors facilitate fun science activities that enhance Museum exhibits
