What is a Camp Troop
Camp Troop is a regular resident summer camp experience for all Scouts. Have a fun time with sailing, shooting, ATVs, paintball, archery, climbing, mountain biking, COPE and other camp activities. Work on merit badges or finish up partials. Get a chance to meet new Scouts. You can come for one or more weeks as an individual or bring some of your Scouting friends.
How Does Camp Troop Work at Camp Somers
At Camp Somers, a Camp Troop Scout will join one of the troops spending the week at Camp Somers. He will become a member of that troop and will be able to enjoy the companionship of other Scouts and participate with them in activities and merit badges. Troop assignments are done one week prior to the arrival of your son. If your son wishes to be placed with a particular troop, it is the parent's responsibility to make such arrangements directly with that troop's leader prior to coming to camp. You must then contact Tom Stoddard at 973-347-3266 or 2240 one week prior to your son's arrival. Otherwise the camp will place your son with an available troop, and that placement will be final.
