Summer Camp

Troop 97 traditionally spends one week in early July at Camp NoBeBoSco, located in Blairstown, NJ.

The camp experience is unlike traditional summer camp – it is one week of fairly intensive scouting. Newer scouts will have the opportunity to complete almost all of the second class requirements, as well as many first class requirements. They will also have the opportunity to earn one or two merit badges. Experienced scouts will have the opportunity to earn several additional merit badges.
