    Field Sports

    Camp Wanocksett is blessed to have two great field sports facilities for Scouts to use during their camp stay. The camp sports program provides an excellent opportunity to teach valuable skills like sportsmanship, teamwork and fun.

    MacCauley Field - Come play sports at MacCauley Field! Enjoy the basketball court, volleyball pit, and tetherball to challenge another troop or just play a pick up game with other Scouts.

    Athletics Field – Our Athletics Field allows teams of Scouts the ability to challenge each other in a number of sports. Soccer, lacrosse, ultimate, and dodgeball are just a few of the many activities available.

    Wanocksett Triathlon – A unique tradition, the weekly Wanocksett Triathlon is one that will challenge the most athletic of Scouts. A 1/4 mile swim in the Thorndike is followed by a strenuous 4 1/2 mile bike ride around the lake. The final leg of the journey is a 1/2 mile run back into camp. Those who finish as a medalist are awarded in a ceremony that evening at retreat.

    Bicycles – Scouts and leaders may bring their bicycles with them to camp. Upon arriving at camp, please inform your troop guide s we may lock it for safe keeping during your stay at camp. Bicycles can only be used for the Wanocksett Triathlon, and bike rides scheduled by the staff. Use of bicycles within camp to ride between program areas and campsites or as general transportation, is not allowed.
