One of the highlights of Camp Wolfeboro is our expansive rock-climbing program. Our location in a granite valley allows us to have three separate natural outdoor rock walls that we are able to safely use.
One of the highlights of Camp Wolfeboro is our expansive rock climbing program. Our location in a granite valley allows us to have three separate natural outdoor rock walls that we are able to safely use. The climbing program can handle scouts from beginner to more advanced climber. There are several climbing areas that the staff will take the scouts to, according to the group’s skill level.
We may be able to accommodate two separate groups of scouts to go climbing, so that more scouts, of varying skill levels may complete the merit badge in the idyllic setting of camp.
A parent’s signature on the standard release section of the Health form gives permission for rock climbing.
The 49ers called prospectors who traveled from camp to camp “Sourdoughs”. At
least twice a week, the staff leads Scouts on this 2.5-mile hike, designed to teach basic backpacking and camping skills to your first-year campers. Please pre-enroll with your Unit Merit Badge Registration online prior to camp.
The Scouts will hike out of camp up the Highland Creek trail to Greenwater. Here they will prepare a meal on backpack stoves, try out some Scoutcraft skills, take a swim, and have a rousing campfire topped off by a Dutch oven dessert prepared by the staff guides. Any unit that sends Scouts must also send at least one adult.
We recommend you bring the following items:
Backpack, Sleeping Bag, Ground Cloth, The Ten Essentials Water (2-L min),
Mess Kit, Appropriate footwear and clothing.
3-Day Wilderness Trek—This exciting program is geared for older Scouts. They will leave Tuesday morning and return to camp on Thursday morning. All troops wanting to participate in this program must bring at least one adult leader from their unit. Units will determine their itinerary and our staff will provide your guide and food for the trip.
We recommend you bring items for the type of Trek you desire. Wolfeboro Wilderness Trek Registration is now online with your Unit Registration and must be completed with Merit Badge sign ups at least two (2) weeks prior to attending camp. Since participants are on the trail, they won’t be able to participate in some in-camp activities.
