Adult Leaders:

 The cost of adult meals at camp are charged to the troop.

 We ask adults who are financially able, to donate toward their meal cost.

 The cost to the troop per adult at meals is $30 per day per person or $200 per week. 

 To help us cover this cost, please make checks payable to: Willistown Troop 78. 

Even though some restrictions may still be in place, Camp Horseshoe is planning to hold Summer Camp just as they would for any other summer. The camp staff has a great system in place and is dedicated to keeping us all safe.

Summer Camp registration and planning are now underway. 

As you begin your planning, please see below the due dates for forms and payments.

Another exciting year at Camp Horseshoe is right around the corner !!!

Once again Troop 78 has reserved the Dan Beard campsite at Camp Horseshoe for two weeks this coming summer.

At summer camp, Troop 78 Scouts learn many skills for rank advancement, earn merit badges (including Eagle Scout and other rank requirements), and display teamwork, Scout skills, and Scout spirit in the many games and contests at camp.

The basis for our Scouting program is camping, and this two-week period is always the highlight of our Scouting year.

The troop leadership would like to have 100% of the troop in camp this summer.

Scouts can stay for one or both weeks. We are encouraging 2nd year and up campers to stay for two weeks.​​

Please note:
​We want all scouts to be able to experience summer camp at Horseshoe.
​There is a financial assistance program to help scouts attend summer camp. 

To maintain confidentiality, please see Mr. D directly about this program.​
