| How Scouts Can Go To Camp |
Many troops of Daniel Webster Council make commitments annually to attend Hidden Valley or Camp Bell. If you are crossing over from Webelos into Boy Scouting this year, you should plan to go to Griswold Scout Reservation this summer. It’s great to experience a full Scouting program with your home troop. Check with your local Scoutmaster for your troop’s summer plans and register through him or her.
If your troop is not attending camp then check out the program offerings at Hidden Valley or Camp Bell that are described on this website. You can attend Hidden Valley as a Provisional Camper and get the same great programs as offered to other scout troops under the leadership of our Staff Scoutmaster.
Why Send My Son to Camp?
Our Scout Camps are fun and adventure filled. The programs at camp will help your son advance, develop life long friendships and enjoy the out-of-doors.
Our aim is to help build Character, Citizenship and Personal Fitness.
