In celebration of Camp Wanocksett's 90th Anniversary of camping on Thorndike Pond, a road race and family day will be held on Saturday, August 2nd. All Scouts - past, present, and future - are invited along with friends and family to enjoy a day by the lake, including BBQ, music, kids fund run, and a 5 mile road race.
Did you forget to pick up a camp shirt from the trading post this past summer? That old shirt not the right size any more? Now you can order one online from http://shop.nashuavalleybsa.org. Shipping is always free!
Head over to our new online store to purchase your favorite camp shirt, misc apparel, and more. More items, including patches, will be added in the coming weeks. Don't delay; quantities of some items & sizes are limited.
Nashua Valley Council takes pride in providing boys with an outstanding summer camping experience. The Counselor In Training (CIT) program builds upon the leadership skills learned elsewhere in the Scouting program. Through the CIT program, Scouts will be prepared to take on leadership roles as part of the summer camp staff and within their troop or crew.
Scouts will participate in the program for 4 weeks:
- All Scouts will participate at Camp Wanocksett during training & camp set-up from June 21-27. (School Snow days can be worked around)
- Scout will then participate in one week of the Boy Scout program, one week in the Cub Scout program, and one final week of their choosing.
The total cost of the program for 2014 is $250. This includes all room & board. This amount is not due until acceptance to the program has been confirmed. Fees will be collected at the CIT orientation meeting on May 19th.
The requirements are stiff; the job demanding; the experience exhilarating!
