Camp Chickahominy, near Williamsburg, VA was sold several years ago due to encroaching development. The new camp of the Colonial Virginia Council is Bayport Scout Reservation.

Staffed there for the summer of 1980!

Nice place.

Camp Sakawawin / Kittatinny Mountain Scout Reservation in New Jersey from 1969 through 1979. Included one year as CIT and two years on Staff.

 

Last six years I have camped with Cubs and OA at D Bar A Scout Reservation in Metamora, Michigan. We will be taking our first year Boy Scout Troop there for a week this summer. Those of us in the Detroit Area Council have been truly blessed with such a great camp! I'm not sure who is more excited about going to summer camp...me or the boys! Camp was always the highlight of my summer.

 

This summer I will be attending the Lutheran Conference at Philmont Training Center. My first trip to Philmont. My first year Scout son will also be going along. My hope is to whet his appetite for a future Trek trip!

As a Scout,

 

Camp Whitsett (www.whitsett.org) 1968 (Trevorum and I share this great camp!)

 

The Silver Knapsack Trail (backpacking trail based out of Whitsett) 1969 and 70

 

The John Muir Trail (part of the Pacific Crest Trail) 1971

 

Mataguay Scout Reservation 1971

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As a Scouter,

 

The Great H Roe Bartle Scout Reservation, 2002 -6. I could not attend last year, work conflicted :( in such a way that I could not make reliable summer plans. Like WakWib, I am a member of the Tribe of Mic-o-Say, as is EagleSon. I served as a commish in 05 and 06.

 

The Great Theordore Naish Scout Reservation, commissioner staff in both Central and Bear Camps, 2003 and onward.

 

Philmont Training Center, 2003.

 

EagleSon has been to Bartle 2002-5, Geiger in 2006 and 7 (HS students with summer jobs are tough to schedule) and on staff at Naish in 2006, 7 and applied for 8. While I was at PTC, he took the Mountain Trek in 2003.

Hi,

I know this is an old forum but I thought I would add my .02.

Cub Day Camp J. Warren Cutler Naples, N.Y. 1974-77

Camp Massawepie Adironadacks 1978-80, 1982,1984-85

Jamboree 1981 AP Hill Va

Philmont Trek Nm 1983

Last year my son went to Summer camp for the first time at Camp Sabbatis

our Council camp in the Adirondacks.

I am going this year as the Scoutmaster, I can't wait. I remember my father saying the first time he went as an adult at age 39 that when he jumped in for the swim test, he thought he was going to have a heart attack. (he didn't)

We'll see if I have the same experience at 41.
