   Boy Scout Camp Information
       The Annawon Council has an agreement with the Narragansett Boy Scout
       Council. By this agreement Cub Scouts from both councils attend Camp
       Norse for Cub Scout Resident Camp. Boy Scouts from Annawon Council
       attend Cachalot Scout Reservation which is 880 acres and owned/operated
       by the Narragansett Council. Boy Scouts from all over use Camp Norse,
       which is 350 acres, during the off season. But, during the summer it is
       strictly a Cub Scout camp except for "Tribal Camp" which is for Boy Scouts
       as well as Venturing Scouts. During the summer Camp Norse is known as
       Camp Norse Cub World.

    This Boy Scout Camp will be celebrating their 84th year of operation during
    the summer of 2008. The camp directly abuts Mount Monadnock State Park.
    Nearby Mt. Monadnock is a mecca for hikers and one of the most hiked
    mountains in the world. Mt. Monadnock offers 40 miles of hiking trails, many
    going up its 3,165 foot summit. The peak offers spectacular views of six
    states. On a clear day you can even see the Boston skyline. The 360 degree
    view of the New England states is one of reason why this mountain is so
popular with hikers. The trail network of Mt Monadnock State Park is directly
connected to the Camp Wanocksett trail network by way of the Shepard's
Reach Trail in camp and the Ravine Trail in the State Park. Depending on the
trails you use the trip can be completed in four to five hours.




           This is the 75 Anniverary Patch for Camp Wanocksett.
                            Established in 1924.

  David R. Collier Scout Reservation - Camp Collier
  Camp Collier Road (off of Kelton Street)
  Gardner, Massachusetts
  Camp Latitude 42.6176 Longitude -71.9657
  HERE for a Topographic Map of Camp Collier.

  This camp occupies 600 acres of land around 2.5 mile long Lake
  Wampanoag. They offered swimming, row boating, canoeing, tent
  campsites, Adirondacks (lean-to) shelters, winter cabins, an activity field for
  atheletics and camporees. They also offered row boat and canoe rentals for
  overnight groups that supply their own BSA or Red Cross certified Lifeguard.

  Camp Collier, first opened in 1930. It served as summer camp for the
  Monadnock Council, BSA, until 1993, when the Monadnock Council, merged
  into the Nashua Valley Council, forcing the closing of the camp. In July 2001,
  it opened again and became the main Cub Scout Summer Camp for the
  Nashua Valley Council. It offered both Cub Scout Day Camp and Webelos
  Resident Camp (Over-Night). Both camp programs included Swimming,
  Boating, Fishing, Nature Study, Field Sports, Crafts, Scout Skills, Archery,
  and BB Guns. Camp Collier also offered Day Camp bus transportation for all
  cities and towns that are within the Nashua Valley Council.

        Campsites
         During the Spring, Fall and Winter (non-summer camp months) Cub
         Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops can rent campsites and buildings
         here. A $5 administrative fee is paid to the Nashua Valley Council and
         the balance is paid to the Camp Ranger upon arrival at the camp (this
         is reflected in the chart below). The reason for these two fee payments
         is because the Nashua Valley Council only leases this property from
         the Monadnock Trust, Inc. so you're paying two different
         organizations. Weekend rental groups need to supply their own
         firewood, so bring some with you.
      Directions to Camp
      From Route 2 take Exit 24 to Route 140 North. Follow Route 140 for
      pproximately 3.5 miles through 2 sets of traffic lights. Approximately 2
      miles after the second traffic light turn left onto Green Street. At the
      top of the hill turn left onto Eaton Street. Eaton Street becomes Kelton
      Street as it crosses Route 140 on an overpass. Just beyond the
      overpass bear left following the signs for Camp Collier. Bear right at
      the second fork to stay on Kelton Street. Drive approximately 2.5
      miles and take a right off of Kelton Street onto Camp Collier Road




      which will take you into the camp.

Held at Camp Paul, on Concord Road in Chelmsford, MA. The Greater Lowell
District holds their Cub Scout Day Camp at Camp Paul, but they do not own
it. They rent it each summer for one week only (usually the 3rd week in
August). The rest of the summer season Camp Paul is a "Special Needs"
Camp and not a BSA Camp. Cub Day Camp is for Wolf-Webelos (grades 1-
5). Activities offered include, songs, games, skits, arts & crafts, swimming
(in a pool), fishing, frog catching, nature study, archery, BB-Guns (BB-Guns
are for Webelos Only) and other activities. It is staffed by Volunteer Boy
Scouts, Scout Leaders, and the Parents of the boys that are lucky enough to
attend. I might add, that I (the Founder and Webmaster of SNE) rate this
program very highly, since my son attended it for 5 years in a row. It is one
of the best and most popular camps offered to Cub Scout age boys.

Nihan Cub Day Camp
Located at Camp Nihan in Saugus, Ma. Cub Day Camp at Nihan is open to
all Cub Scouts going into the 2nd through 5th grades in September (that
includes this year’s Tigers).

From the beginning of camp (9:00 AM) through closing (4:00 PM) it’s non-
stop fun.

 Camp Nihan Environmental Education Camp is an ideal facility for group
camping, hiking and exploring the nearby historic sites of Saugus, Salem,
and Boston. Camp Nihan encompasses sixty five acres of woodland forest,
marsh, and a spring fed pond. The Saugus River flows through the camp
property providing ideal habitat for heron and raptors. A variety of animals
inhabit the area; including fox, deer and river otter. Campers can hike to
nearby Breakheart State Reservation for swimming, hiking, and Vistor
Center services.
