Summer Camp

Troop 670 attends annual summer camp at Rotary Scout Reservation in Poestenkill, NY.  All scouts and adults planning to attend summer camp must have a current medical form with a physical in the last 12 months.  A link to this form can be found on the forms page.

Camperships are available to help cover the costs of camp for scouts.  Please ask the troop leadership if you are considering a campership.

Some helpful links to more information about summer camp at Rotary can be found on the links page.

Parents are encouraged to attend the Family BBQ on Wednesday evening.  Details can be found here.

Directions to camp can be found here. The address is 279 Davitt Lake Rd, Averill Park, NY 12018.  The phone number to camp is (518) 283-4794. Please do not drop in to camp without calling and advising the troop leaders at camp.  Parents are welcome on Wednesday evening, but other visits can cause anxiety and homesickness.  Thanks for your cooperation!
