Are you a Mom who would like to be more involved in Scouting with your children? Do you need a little more adventure in your life? Here’s a great story.
Family Scouting is a great opportunity for many families. If you want more information about joining Scouting as a youth or as an adult, go to www.trappertrails.org/pathforward. We have units available today to help serve for family’s needs.
Hello Scouting Alumni,
At Camp Fife this year we have continued to see amazing changes happen to our facilities. This year we planted 10 trees and a drip system to water them keeping them alive and heathy. Other changes included a new entrance into camp to help with traffic flow, a new Nature Trail that follows the river, and a new Obstacle Course. Later this year construction of a new amphitheater will take place at camp that will wrap up in the spring of next year.
Many thanks to our terrific donors!
Camp Fife’s facilities continue to improve and get better each year. This change, of course, is nothing without the youth and leaders who attend camp. We had over 4,000 youth attend camp this past summer. We had some truly incredible staff at Fife this summer. If you have not yet come by to see Camp Fife, please sign up for our camp this next season. Our join us at our next activity with the Order of the Arrow ordeal October 12-13, 2018. Hope to see you there!
Not all Scout camps are created equal. Sure, each offers a terrific program to entertain and challenge Scouts, but every Scout camp has unique program elements that make it special.

Each of us know a Scouter that has been involved in Scouting for many years but who’s uniform does not have the blue and white square knot showing that they have been honored with the Silver Beaver award. We may ask ourselves why. Could it be that they have not been nominated? If that is the case then it is our responsibility to correct that oversight.
The deadline to nominate a Scouter for this year’s Silver Beaver award is December 1, 2018. All nominations must be submitted online. The nomination form can be found on the Silver Beaver page of the Trapper Trails Council website. We are allowed to present forty awards this year and want to award all of them.
It takes time to gather the information so don’t delay, December will be here before you know it!
Bartlett Scout Reservation 2018 was a fun filled year with plenty of fun, growth, and life changing experiences. Over 3,000 Scouts attended camp this summer. Each Scout took five merit badge classes and were able to experience all the adventure of Scouting during free-time activities. Scouts could participate in activities such as archery, rifle & shotgun shooting, swimming, canoeing, rock climbing, discover nature, create crafts, and much more. These small life changing experiences are just the start to their Scouting and life adventures.
The tradition of excellence at Bartlett Scout Reservation has continued for over 50 years. This summer the 2018 Bartlett Staff welcomed our Bartlett Alumni and their families from years past for our Bartlett Alumni Day. This event allowed Bartlett Alumni the opportunity to rekindle their Bartlett experiences by walking the trails and participating in camp-wide activities. Memories were relived, and new ones created.
