Get Excited, Get Ready, Get Psyched for Summer Camp!!



A proud tradition of adventure and excitement in the outdoors has been Goose Pond's from the first campers in 1920 to the Scouts who walked through the gates just last year.

At Goose Pond, you will find something for everyone, from the newest Tenderfoot to the most intense Eagle. From Pathways to merit badges to the C.O.P.E. course and Voyager program for the elite outdoorsman, there's an exciting adventure for you.
