Your Camp in the Maine Woods

Scouts BSA Winter Camp

During the deep snows of February school vacation, Scouts BSA youth will be able to stay warm and cozy in the Messer Training Center at Camp Hinds.

Winter Camp is a 4 day, 3 night provisional camp program for Scouts 13 years and older and at least First Class Rank.  Provisional means you sign-up as an individual Scout.  You don’t need to come with your troop or patrol – camp provides adult leaders, patrol leaders, and merit badge counselors.  Come alone or with a buddy. 

Enrollment is limited to the first 30 Scouts who sign up. $50 non-refundable deposit required.

Along with fun in the snowy outdoors, scouts can choose up to four merit badges from the following list (Schedule and merit badge selection on Blackpug to come soon):

  • American Heritage
  • American Labor
  • Aviation
  • Citizenship in the World*
  • Citizenship in the Community*
  • Communication*
  • Chess
  • Public Speaking
  • Robotics
  • Safety
  • Welding

Make sure you have an up-to-date BSA Health Form! (Parts A,B, and C). Download the health form HERE!

Take advantage of the Early Bird registration to save $25 (Ends January 15th).
