Troop 179 attends at least one long-term summer camp (six-nights) in June or July each year.
This year we are camping in Camp Lions (Tidewater Council) at Pipsico Scout Reservation in Spring Grove, VA
during the week of 25 June to 1 July 2017. Pipsico's website is http://pipsicobsa.com/
We are also camping in Camp Powhatan (Blue Ridge Council) at Blue Ridge Scout Reservation in Pulaski County Virginia during the week of 16-22 July. Their website is https://bsa-brmc.org/reservation
In early October of each year our scouts vote on which camp they would like to attend for the next summer. They usually consider a site that provides a First-year camper and a High Adeventure program.
Every Scout and Adult Leader attending summer camp must have a complete medical form on file with the troop. This includes having a doctor's signature that you have had a physical within one year of attending camp.
