Many Point is ON for this year! Dates for our Troop in 2021 are Sunday, August 1st – Saturday August 7th.  

As of now, they are planning regular Merit Badge sessions, Older Scout Programs and regular Troop activities. A few things that will be different compared to a ‘typical’ year at Many Point are we will be eating meals in our campsite (minimal prep) versus eating in the Dining Hall; also, there will not be any large group gatherings at camp this year – translation: no Opening or Closing Campfire, no Ironman Competition, etc. ☹ . Things from those perspectives certainly could change, and we hope that they do for the better – fingers crossed! We most likely will need to wear masks, at least in the common areas. Stay tuned.
