Summer Camp

Why should you come to Camp Mattatuck Summer Camp? The most highly dedicated staff in the state are ready to give you the best week of the summer.  There are so many activities for scouts of every age that they will not want to leave. Mattatuck has the best and most complete waterfront in New England with instructional swimming, boating, canoeing, sliding seat sculls, sailing, springboard diving, an underwater orienteering course, the largest kayak fleet and the ever popular blueberry lilypads. Oh yeah, don't forget the ever popular BLOB. The Archery program and instruction are tops. The Climbing Tower is the most famous in the country. The COPE course brings scouts back year after year. These are only a few of the reasons.

Camp Mattatuck’s Boy Scout summer camp runs six one-week sessions starting in early July and running through mid-August. Scouts can attend with their troops or attend with scouts from other troops through our provisional camping program. Scouts and leaders stay in wall tents in one of our twelve campsites, with come furnished with bunks and mattresses, and three meals are served daily in the Rotary Dining Hall. Mornings and evenings generally consist of instructional and troop activities, while afternoons provide ample opportunities for merit badges. Mixed throughout the day are fun activities such as: Swimming, Boating, Sailing, Rifle, Archery, Shotgun, Fishing, Climbing, Mountain Biking, Geo-caching, and many more.
