Scouts BSA Summer Opportunities

Registration for 2023 summer programs is now open. Register today!

New for summer 2023, Camp Workcoeman will be offering week-long Scouts BSA Powder Horn and National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) courses. Building on the success of the past couple seasons, Camp Workcoeman will continue to offer a variety of short-term opportunities for Scouts BSA participants throughout the summer of 2023, including one- and two-day merit badges, a la carte activities/rentals, and scuba certification. In addition, overnight unit and family camping is available all summer. These programs are not designed to replicate a traditional troop summer camp experience; rather, they are intended to supplement one through a variety of flexible programs.
