This year, we have two summer camp options and they are spaced apart so that you can do both!. Wente Scout Reservation is about three hours away, near the town of Willits.Wente offers a chance to backpack, sail, mountain bike, fish, ride horses, and go rock climbing all in one week. Scouts may try their hand at black powder musket firing, kayaking and rappelling. Expert instruction in popular outdoor skill merit badges will make the Scoutcraft area come alive. Wente is rich in wildlife and allows for the study of conservation, re-forestation, wildlife management, woodcraft and nature study. Rifle, shotgun, and archery shooting are also popular activities.

The tall Douglas Fir and golden meadows spell adventure for the Unit that likes to rough it and test their skills. The 80-acre lake is great place for swimming, sailing, boating, and canoeing, and it is considered one of the warmest lakes in the state. The lake also offers some prime fishin' with many trophy bass caught by both the expert and novice angler.

Merit badge options or activities in 2017 included Movie Making, Cooking , lifesaving, Space Exploration, Horsemanship (those 14+ by summercamp), Mining and Society, Pulp and Paper, Climbing, Fishing, Fly Fishing, and activities such as black powder shooting, and their Trail to Eagle, where Scouts can work on Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class Requirements.
