Moraine Trails CouncilCamping2018 Boy Scout Summer Camp

First Year Camper Achievements can be located HERE


Camp Bucoco: Into the Unknown

The theme around camp will be adventure and mystery. Just like every year scouts will be able to earn merit badges, Oak Leaves and have lots of fun but this coming year they’ll also be able to do something else. That is, participate in a camp-wide puzzle that will earn their troop a mysterious prize!

Current available Merit Badge Spaces may be found HERE

Why attend?

One word: Mystery.  Yes, Scouts going to summer camp will earn merit badges, learn new skills, make friends, eat lots of marshmallows and engage in activities they can’t do elsewhere.  But it’s really about building their own unique adventure filled with activities of their choosing.  Plus it’s a lot of FUN.

Just For Parents

Boy Scout Summer Camp a game with a purpose.  A game that goes beyond video games and smart phones. A game that teaches leadership skills. And a game that promotes the core values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Scout Camp is the single most important activity in a boy’s Scouting life.
