Summer Camp
Attendence at summer camp is optional but is highly encouraged as the benenfits are many:

-- The boys will have a lot of fun.

-- They will be among a great deal of other scouts.

-- There are opportunities to learn new skills, working together as a team and earning scout merit badges.

--  It teaches the boy independence.

Camp Specifics:
-- The troop generally goes to Camp Raven Knob, located in Mt. Airy, North Carolina, about 6 hours drive from MHC (transportation to the camp is provided by the troop).
-- The troop generally goes the week of July 29 - August 4. 
-- The fee to go is $180,  which includes transportation, the campsite, most all activities, food and patches.  (In case of financial need the troop may provide assistance with the cost of the camp.)

Scout Testimonials:

Alex Williams, Eagle Scout:  "The magnificent views you get to see, the people you get to meet, and also the merit badges and ranks you can earn while attending are really great, it is well worth the cost."
