Named as a "COOL CAMP" in the January - February 2013 issueExternal Link of Scouting Magazine!

This is the camp your Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather would have wanted to attend. It's not a sit back and just "hang-out" camp. This camp is all about traditional American frontier skills and adventure, lots of action, and great food presented by a high qualified volunteer staff.

WHAT IS FRONTIERS CAMP?

Frontiers Camp is a unique resident specialty summer camp program offered for eight days and seven nights (Saturday through Saturday) and presented once each summer for BSA registered Boy Scouts and Venture Crew members at the Mount Norris Scout Reservation located in Eden Mills Vermont.

The camp theme is centered around the activities of a 1830s-style mountain man American frontier rendezvous. The goal of Frontiers Camp is to develop self-reliance, team-work, and moral and ethical judgment in a hardy eight-day, seven-night BSA resident camp using Scouting and other approved programs (such as State Hunter Education and NRA)  using a proven, experienced, and all-volunteer staff of over 60 (85% adults). Our goals are: fun, leadership development, advancement and merit badges. All staff members are hand selected from previous Frontiers Camps and are volunteers who are well trained and very capable. All merit badge and rank instruction is provided by the adult staff.

The complete program is four years long – so there are plenty of mountain man and rendezvous as well as Scouting experiences for the youngest to the oldest at Frontiers Camp. (As boys get older, they need and get different levels of program challenge. The program is fun and satisfying for all ages.) 2016 will be Frontiers Camp's 15th anniversary year!

Frontiers Camp embraces these five principles in guiding the staff crew: "be supportive, be better, be pioneering, be accountable and be enthusiastic". These are what makes Frontiers Camp an exceptional camp experience. 

Frontiers Camp...  "There's no camp better than this." .... "Still the best."

This is an outstanding resident camping adventure, and at a very reasonable price!
