I too recommend Seven Ranges,this summer was first trip for me.
Excellent Camp Honors program.
We also use Camp Tuscazoar (old Boy Scout Camp) for weekend camping.
A good place to work on scout skills and advancement requirements.The
camp is used by youth groups for camping and hiking.Also small scout
museum and some cabins available. Netawotwes District uses the camp
for district events( Klondike Derby,Webelos Weekend,Fall Fun Days,Etc)
Pig Gig coming up soon is a fund raiser for the camp,weekend of Sept 12
we will be back out on the Tuscazoar's trails again.
