Since the earliest days of the Boy Scouts of America, boys have gathered in the summer to learn leadership skills in an outdoor setting. Fun, fellowship, and opportunities to try new activities await. 2017 brings new summer camping opportunities to Pine Tree Council.
Camp William Hinds in beautiful Raymond, Maine, is ready for another year of summer on Panther Pond, with new programs, excited staff and a gorgeous new dining hall. It's the 90th anniversary of boys camping at Camp Hinds and this year will be full of fun and surprises.
Do you want to be a part of the excitement? Learn new skills? And make lifelong friendships? Sign up for Camp Hinds now to reserve the spot for your troop or come as a provisional Scout in our Troop H.
Be one of the first Scouts and volunteers to eat in our new dining hall that can hold up to 500 people. This new building is also the home of our new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) program.
Ready to explore the Maine Coast? Take a Sea Kayak Trek in Casco Bay. Experience 50 miles of seals, seabirds, waves, and deserted islands.
Are you Scout enough to hike 12 miles day with all you need on your back? If so, sign up to hike 50 miles of the most difficult stretch of the Appalachian Trail. This is the most challenging trek we offer.
For Scouts looking for other adventure opportunities, check out Camp Bomazeen in Belgrade, Maine. With three weeks of programming, Scouts have an option to join the Nichemis program for new Scouters, the STEAM program for those science minded and Megeso, a Trail to Eagle program to help move a Scout's journey to Eagle forward. With a new program building, canvas tents and Adirondacks, Camp Bomazeen has a lot to offer this summer.
The fun doesn’t have to end with just one week at Camp Bomazeen! Scouts wanting a high adventure experience can check out the 50-mile Moose River Canoe Trek and Whitewater Adventure. You'll enjoy challenging yourself traveling in the backcountry by canoe and have the thrill of riding a raft through Maine’s whitewater.
