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.
2018 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 the return of family-style dining!
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.
STEAM will be bigger and better than last year in our new STEAM Center -- with additional programming and new equipment. Robotics, welding, animation, structures, architecture, and game design are just a few of the interactive advancement opportunities with low instructor to camper ratios!
For Scouts looking for non-traditional programming, check out Camp Bomazeen in the Belgrade Lakes Region of Maine. Scouts have an option to join the Nichemis program for new Scouts, the STEAM program for those science minded Scouts, Megeso, a Trail to Eagle program, Trades Program, wilderness survival, and more. With more than $1 million of recent camp improvements, Camp Bomazeen is a stunningly beautiful camp with a highly enthusiastic staff!
Looking for adventure beyond what traditional summer camp offers?
