Summer Camp

One of the best experiences in scouting is attending summer camp at a BSA resident scout camp.  Summer camp is more than just a place to have fun. It also offers Scouts the opportunity to participate in physically and intellectually challenging activities, introduces them to new and rewarding experiences, and provides them with supportive and caring relationships. For 2022, Troop 270 will once again attend Camp Sequassen in New Hartford, CT, where we were awarded "Super Troop" in 2019.  This year, we will attend during an Eagle week from August 7 to 13.  For more information, click on the brochure to the left.  You can also visit the Camp Sequassen site.  For images from last year's camp, please click here.  For our new Scout parent video, click here.
