Are you having difficulty finding Leaders to get a week off of work to take Scouts to camp?
Embracing the enduring tradition of 'Individual' or 'Lone Scout' camping, a practice deeply ingrained in the roots of our organization, Schoepe Scout Reservation at Lost Valley is reviving the classic spirit of scouting. While Scoutmasters and parents have more recently joined their Scouts on camping expeditions, we are now reaffirming the timeless appeal of solo camping, inviting adults to take a well-deserved break and entrust the adventure to us. This unique opportunity not only upholds the 'old school' ethos but also provides a gateway for scouts who may have missed out with their Troop or those eager to relish an additional week immersed in the wonders of the great outdoors.
"I met him three days ago and it's like we have been best friends for years. We are practically twins, we have everything in common. We are definitely going to hang out after camp." -Maverick Scout
Throughout the week-long adventure, your Scout will not only be a welcomed participant in their assigned unit's activities but will also form lasting bonds with other Scouts, creating a network of friendships that extends beyond the campsite. Our dedicated staff will be by their side, ensuring that every aspect of their experience is enjoyable, comfortable, and memorable.
This program goes beyond the conventional camping experience, providing a platform for your Scout to broaden their horizons and engage with scouting in a way that fosters independence and camaraderie. It's not just about being a part of a Troop; it's about embracing a new perspective, learning from fellow Scouts, and building skills that extend far beyond the boundaries of the campsite. Your Scout will emerge from this unique opportunity with a wealth of experiences, newfound friendships, and a deeper connection to the spirit of scouting.
