Some past favorites: Natural Shelters, Spelunking, White Water Rafting, Rock Climbing, Skiing, High Ropes and Zip Lines, Clay Target Shooting.

Long Term Camp

Summer Camp 2018 will be at Powhatan Scout Reservation near Roanake, VA. Summer Camp is a mainstay of the Scouting program. Troop 50 typically visits different camp locations each year to keep the summers active and interesting. 


Tucked in the valley formed by the Big Macks Creek, Camp Powhatan is the largest council owned Scout camp in the United States. The big camp atmosphere surrounds you with excitement from morning flags till evening taps. Extensive camping facilities, wireless Internet, and many opportunities for advancement make Powhatan an ideal spot to live the Scout Oath and Law.
