Trek Camp 2022
Kuweike Trek Camp at Garden State Council
A brand new program for Scouts BSA Scouts ages 13+.
Come seek Adventure Among the Pines!
Kuweike means “among the pines” in the Lenne Lenape language. Kuweike Trek Camp is a specialty program that opens up the unique Pine Barrens habitat in South Jersey to Scouting!
The Pine Barrens is a special ecosystem in our back yard. There are things that grow and live only here. Explore New Jersey’s Pine Barrens while on a high adventure trek and participate in Environmental Science, Sustainability, Forestry, and Soil and Water Conservation Merit Badges.
