Boy Scouts Camp
Boy Scout Summer Camp Programs
Camp Chief Little Turtle provides one of the best Boy Scout camping experiences in the Midwest, with a crystal clear Pit Lake for swimming, boating and fishing; to our air-conditioned Larson Dining Hall and over 1200 acres of northern Indiana woodlands for your Scouting adventure.
Our programs range from the traditional Merit Badges to open activities areas; Buckskin program (blackpowder, tomahawk and axe tossing, branding, etc); Other daily open programs include; Mountain Boarding, Canoe treks, Disc golf, Climbing and Flying Squirrel. Special programs for all Scouts will be Top Scout and Pigeon River Adventure Canoe Trip.
We also offer patrol or troop competition with the CCLT Triathlon (swim, bike and run) and catapult contest.
For Scouts 14 years and older, we have a week-long, stand alone program for older scouts, called Top Scout. The program is for older, more experienced scouts. It is loosely based on the TV show the ―Amazing Race‖ and the Army Top Ranger Contest. Teams of 3 scouts, 6 teams maximum, will be given tasks based on scout skills to complete. These tasks will be difficult to complete and require strenuous effort on the part of the participants. Points will be awarded for completing the task. Fastest wins more points, the manner and mechanism (team work and scout spirit) will also count toward points. At the end of the week, the total number of points will be tallied and the winning team will be recognized at the closing campfire and be given an award. Problem solving will be a key component of the program.
Anthony Wayne Area Council Boy Scouts believes that every scout deserves the opportunity to experience Boy Scout Camp. No scout should not be able to attend camp because of lack of financial resources. Funds are available to in-council scouts for up to ½ the cost of camp. Complete the Campership Application and submit it to your troop leader.
