Many Point Scout Camp

Many Point        

"Scouts who come to Many Point will still participate in some of the traditional activities like swimming, canoeing, rowing, orienteering, lashing and shooting. Yet they will also have a chance to participate in some of the more recent innovations. We now have a huge fleet of Sunfish sailboats, six climbing towers, ATV training programs, several 25′ aqua trampolines, two Huck Finn rafts, Jet Ski’s, kayaks and two tree house villages.

In addition to a variety of programs, troops also have the choice to camp in one of fifty campsites split among four sub-camps. Although each sub-camp offers the same great program, each differs by the style of meals provided. Buckskin has a full service dining hall, Ten Chiefs offers a combination of patrol cooking and heater stacks, Voyageur troops cook food provided by the commissary and Pioneer troops can choose a commissary option or provide their own food.

Scouters can also bring their families to stay in one of twenty cabins and participate in the fully-staffed program at our Family Camp.

Becoming A Counselor In Training (CIT)

Many Point offers a very diverse set of activities. For those who love the camp, one of those is becoming a Counselor in Training (or CIT) and staying at Many Point for 5 straight weeks during the summer. You must be at least 15 years old (In some cases, they allow you to be 14 and completed 9th grade) to qualify. Being a CIT costs $100 for the entire 5 weeks, (which is actually cheaper than not going (35 days * 3 meals a day $1 each = $105)) participants can earn their BSA Lifeguard, as well as every merit badge and award given at Many Point, and Many Point gives out Scholarships to active CIT's. More information is here (Bottom half of the link).
