Welcome Letter From the Reservation Director


Dear Scouts and Scouters,


Welcome Home to the 2024 Onteora Scout Reservation BSA Summer Camp! As you step into the lush surroundings of our beloved camp, you are not just entering a physical space but reuniting with traditions that cherish the Scouting spirit. This year, we're excited to infuse our time-honored slogan "Welcome Home" with a thrilling twist as we embark on a time-travel themed adventure, integrating this concept into our week-long adventure.

Our team has been working tirelessly to create a camp experience that transcends the ordinary. From the crafting of ancient tools to the exploration of tomorrow's technologies, our activities are designed to enrich your Scouting experience with lessons from the past and insights into the future.

This year's non-merit badge programs are not just about learning. They're about experiencing the unity and camaraderie that is at the heart of our "Welcome Home" philosophy. As you journey through time, you'll be forging bonds with fellow Scouts and Scouters, participating in challenges that test your skills, and creating memories that will last a lifetime. These experiences are crafted to enhance teamwork, leadership, and the enduring values for which Scouting stands.

So, to all our Scouts and Scouters, Welcome Home! Let's embrace the spirit of adventure and camaraderie as we delve into the annals of history and leap into the future. Together, we will make the 2024 Onteora Scout Reservation an unforgettable journey through time, where every Scout and Scouter is a vital part of our vibrant, ever-evolving Scouting family.


Yours in Scouting,

Kevin T. Shea
