Summer Camp

Troop 179 attends at least one long-term summer camp (six-nights) in June or July each year.

We are also camping in Camp Powhatan (Blue Ridge Council) at Blue Ridge Scout Reservation in Pulaski County Virginia during the week of 16-22 July.  Their website is

In early October of each year our scouts vote on which camp they would like to attend for the next summer.  They usually consider a site that provides a First-year camper and a High Adeventure program.

Every Scout and Adult Leader attending summer camp must have a complete medical form on file with the troop.  This includes having a doctor's signature that you have had a physical within one year of attending camp.
