December Winter Camp 2020

Circle Ten Council’s annual Winter Camp at Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp is a special jamboree-style camping event for Boy Scout troops, Venturing Crews and Sea Scout Ships. It traditionally has been the largest annual event put on by Circle Ten Council and is staffed by Circle Ten’s Mikanakawa Lodge of the Order of the Arrow. However, due to COVID pandemic and State restrictions, new guidelines and rules will be in place for Winter Camp 2020.

Winter Camp is more of a Jamboree style event. There will be some merit badges offered, but there are more centers of activities for Scouts to learn and participate beyond merit badge studies.
Units camp jamboree style with multiple units in a single campsite. There will be fewer units sharing camp sites as social distancing rules are in place this year that is reducing the number of participants and units that can register. The chance to make new friends from outside your immediate Scouting circle is one of the key rewards. Food is prepared by each unit in their
campsites (with the exception of the optional closing night BBQ).

Each morning, Scouts can work on merit badges, take part in special living history programs in the Mountain Man, Indian Village and Lumberjack areas or learn new program skills. Afternoons
offer a wide-range of activities including competitive games, shooting sports, climbing, activities in the living history areas, horseback riding, wood-turning and more!

Evenings include special events like a Native American Pow Wow, Cowboy Action Shoot competition, Water Bottle Rocket Build and Launch, Star Watch parties or just relaxing in the campsite around the campfire. Be glad you did not say “I cannot go!”

COST: $130 plus Merit Badge fees
