Camp Roosevelt offers a traditional experience for Troops to attend camp. Troops are assigned a campsite that serve as their home during their week. Scouts and Leaders will register for camp and their programs online via the unit contact.
Troops may sign up for camp by completing & submitting the Declaration of Intent (available on the next page)
The Camp Roosevelt Provisional Program is designed to provide Scouts with the opportunity to attend Roosevelt without their troop. This can be a scout who had such a great time with his troop that he wants to return for an additional week, or a boy who wants to attend Roosevelt even though his troop will not be attending. The program provides a full time Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster.
Scouts in this program are organized into patrols and will function as a troop, electing a Senior Patrol Leader on the first day. In the troop setting, Scouts work to attain their goals for the week. The troop participates in all camp-wide activities and even provides some special troop activities in the Provisional campsite – just like a real troop! In recent summers, our Provisional troop has been very successful in inter-troop competitions and individual scout awards and recognitions. “Pro-V”, as the Provisional program is often referred to as, needs more enthusiastic Scouts to help continue its streak of success. The provisional troop’s motto: “Pro-V a place to be, Pro-V the place for me”
