Summer Camp – Camp Buffalo Bill, Yellowstone
June 16 - June 26
Yes, it’s early to start talking about Summer Camp next year, but deposits are due soon, and we need a good idea on numbers. Our plan is to leave early on the 16th and arrive at Old Faithful the morning of the 17th. We will spend 2+ days exploring Yellowstone before heading to Camp Buffalo Bill on Sunday, June 19th. On Wednesday, June 22nd, the camp closes so Scouts can enjoy Yellowstone or Cody. We will likely visit the National Rodeo Circuit in Cody that day. Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic, Mammoth Springs, Hayden Valley and more are planned while in Yellowstone. Much more to come on Summer Camp, but we need a strong estimate on numbers as we expect registration to open up at any time. Merit Badge and High Adventure offerings will be available once registration opens. Camp Buffalo Bill is located 10 miles east of Yellowstone, so whether they take classes or do High Adventure: they will be surrounded by beautiful views, leading to unforgettable experiences. Costs are not yet known, but we are guessing about $100 – to $150 more than this year’s Summer Camp. High Adventure participants will pay slightly more, but everyone I have talked to said it’s the best High Adventure experience of any Summer Camp. This is going to be a Summer Camp that all eligible 221 boys do not want to miss!
