FRONTIERS CAMP - A GREAT CHOICE FOR YOUR 2014 SUMMER CAMP! 

We are working to update the camp information for 2014.

FRONTIERS CAMP was noted in a "COOL CAMP" article in the January - February 2013 issue 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.

HUNTER EDUCATION TRAINING SIGN-UP INFORMATION
(Basic Rifle, Bow Hunter and Trapping)

All campers will be receiving an email invitation in the next day or so to sign up for a Hunter Education course at Frontiers Camp. When completed satisfactorily, hunter education courses give you credentials that are valid to obtain a hunting, bow hunting or trapping license in Vermont as well as in other states. There is a link on the invitation email that you must go to and fill out a registration form. (The link leads you to a page appropriate to your year of attendance.) You must also download the Parental Permission Form, have it signed and bring it to camp with you on June 21.

If you are not interested in taking a hunter education course at camp, you do not have to respond to the invitation

This invitation and registration process is now a State of Vermont requirement to attend training. It replaces formerly used "bubble sheets". If you signed up for a hunter education course on your registration form, you must also fill out the form that you will find by following the link on the invitation to take hunter education training.

Don't forget: There is pre-camp work that needs to be done for Hunter Education courses. Obtain the books required for your course as provided in the "details and information" link below.

If there are any corrections or omissions with regards to you program, notify the camp director at frontierscamp@scoutingvermont.org

OVERVIEW

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.) 2014 will be Frontiers Camp's 14th anniversary year!

Frontiers Camp has received a Certificate of Accreditation noting that Frontiers Camp had successfully met or exceeded the requirements of the National Standards for Resident Camps and was approved as a Nationally Accredited Resident Camp on June 25, 2013.

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!

Please note: With regards to reservations: First come, first served.
The Woodsman Program has space available for only 60 campers.  

Camp dates: Saturday, June 21 through Saturday, June 28, 2014
