Scout Weekends

Bring your troop to Lake George

girl-scoutsYMCA Camp Chingachgook is the perfect setting for Girl Scout  and Boy Scout Troops to visit for an outing. While here, a troop can work on Badges, Add-Ons or Journeys and also take advantage of the many camp activities available seasonally. Troops select a badge or Journey to work toward and we create a fun-filled schedule that facilitates completion of that badge.

 

Brownies and Juniors generally complete all requirements in one day, while Cadettes and Seniors can work on more intensive aspects of badges requiring outdoor and environmental components.
