Scouts will stay in one of Camp Wanocksett’s picturesque tent sites. Tents are 9’x9′ canvas wall tents on wooden platforms with bunks and mattresses. Meals are prepared by our food service and served in the camp dining hall.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Den Leaders are a vital part of the Camp staff. Volunteering gives parents an opportunity to share in the camp experience with their son. Volunteering also reduces the camp fee for for each week you volunteer. Den Leaders work with the staff and a den of 10-12 Scouts for the session. Volunteer Den Leaders will be required to attend a mandatory training session in the Spring. Volunteer opportunities are limited. Please sign up early.
