Summer Camping

Congratulations on deciding to be a leader for your unit’s Summer
Camp stay!

Your Scouts will benefit greatly by your decision and commitment.
Their time spent at camp will prove to be a wonderful experience due to
your participation and guidance.  The challenge of helping boys develop
into men is what it means to be a Scoutmaster.  The values that are
an intrinsic part of being a Scout, are the components needed to be good
citizens in one’s community.  As a Scoutmaster, you are setting a strong
example for the young men of tomorrow.

OCKANICKON SCOUT RESERVATION is owned and operated by the Bucks County Council, Boy Scouts of America. Since 1940, our mission has been to offer quality summer camp programs to all Scouts. Our camp is regionally and nationally recognized for both our fine facilities and program and Ockanickon Scout Reservation is routinely inspected and consistently meets the standards set down by the B.S.A. National Office for an Accredited Boy Scout Summer Camp. All key staff members are trained through the B.S.A. National Camp School system and many staff members are trained in C.P.R., basic first aid and emergency procedures. We hold ourselves to the highest local and state standards in food service and property management. We are proud of our camp, its history and its goals. As a staff, we are dedicated to our Camp and its mission.  We hope that your stay at Ockanickon will be a positive, fun-filled experience for both you and your Scouts.
