Scout Programs

Scouts (Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts) make up the majority of the campers and participants at all Base Camp locations.

The Saturday Scout Open Program is the cornerstone of all programming at Base camp. Scout groups can add onto their program experience by participating in High Adventure Programs. All Saturday programs provide advancement opportunities for Girl Scouts & Boy Scouts at all levels. Additionally, all Base Camps Support Scout Book, making the record keeping for all advancement instantaneous. Additionally, Scouts have access to a wide range of lodging opportunities, from cabin camping, to lean to shelters and tent camping.

Saturday Program

Join us for our Saturday program! Either at our main camp in Milton, MA or at Lone Tree in Kingston, NH. Work on or complete your Merit Badges! Our staff can help Scouts complete or start merit badges. We specialize in all the requirements that say “Do.” Be sure to bring your Scout Book app so you can receive credit for your successes immediately! Come and give archery a try and then head over to the Axe Yard to learn to chop/split and plain a log. Be sure to save some time to go rock climbing, throw a tomahawk, test your skills at outdoor cooking and dig up a dinosaur. Merit Badge options include: camping, cooking, lifesaving, swimming, archery, rifle shooting, orienteering, pioneering, Indian Lore, American cultures, mammal study, soil and water conservation, bird study, weather, forestry, insect study, chess, robotics, basketry, space exploration, geology and more. Saturday fun begins at Base Camp.

High Adventure Programs

During Open Programs on Saturdays, everyone at Base Camp has the opportunity to participate in advanced specialty programs. Ice Climbing and Mountaineering programs are booked well in advance, so don't wait! Advanced Rock Climbing, High Ropes Course and Canoeing Treks are also popular programs.

Cub Scout Satellite Programs

If your Den wants to do special programs, you don't have to come all the way to Base Camp! We have five different Satellite locations that run programming specific to each rank: Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears & Webelos. With the Adventure Card (which all cubs have) participating in satellite programs are free! Check out our programs and pick a location near you!

 

Training

Are you new to Scouting? You just raised your hand to be a Den Leader or a Scoutmaster and don't know where to begin?

Bring the scouts and their families to Base Camp for an afternoon! It's free with your Adventure Card! While you are there, the boys can work on badges and you'll participate side by side and walk away with your adult badge for training! It's simple - while he has fun measuring, preparing and cooking his meal, you simultaneously learn how to manage a meal for a group of scouts.

BALOO Training and IOLS Training available every week at Open Program in Milton!

Scoutbook

New England Base camp is Powered by Scouting – and Scout Book fuels the engine. Be sure to bring your Scout Book App with you to camp. Our weekend staff is certified and can sign off on countless merit badges, rank advancements, and Cub Scout adventures. The Camp is fully loaded with a strong wifi signal and with a Scout Store on premises, if the Scout leader approves, the unit can even print the advancement report and buy the patches in the shop that same day! PLEASE NOTE: Spirit of Adventure pays for its Cub Scouts to have the Scout Book App as part of their adventure card.
