bsr-logoAfter having several discussions with the scouts and after looking at the results of the adult participant survey, it has been decided that Troop 614 will be going to Blue Ridge Scout Reservation in Virginia for our 2018 summer camp (July 7-14, 2018).

Below is a guide to everything Blue Ridge Scout Reservation has to offer. Please take note that all of the prices are for the 2017 season and could change next year.

All scouts taking part in one of the provisional programs must make their choice ASAP.

Please fill out the form below to let let Mr. Small know whether or not you plan to attend summer camp at Blue Ridge Scout Reservation (July 7-14, 2018).
