One for the biggest highlights for Scouts is attending summer camp each year. Troop 159 spends six nights and seven days at Camp Wah-Tut-Ca in Northwoods, New Hampshire where Scouts are allowed to focus on the offered activities that interest them the most. Scouts will spend their days on activities such as fishing, sailing, swimming, archery, cooking, crafts and much more in an outdoor environment that provides a safe place to learn and grow.
Wah-Tut-Cah Scout Reservation is a Boy Scout camp in Northwoods, New Hampshire, where our troop goes to summer camp each summer. It is a week long adventure of rank advancement, troop spirit, and most of all, fun! Going to summer camp with 159 is an amazing experience for everyone who attends. Wah-Tut-Cah has many merit badge areas, including frontier, waterfront, and the shooting range. This camp has a unique open program, which allows for scouts to easily craft their own schedule around what merit badges they would like to do during program times. When scouts are not in program time, they can participate in activities such as free boat or free swim. Troops can also rent space in rare adventures. Our troop rents the Wibit, which is an inflatable mountain in the lake, usually every day of summer camp, allowing us to play on it every day.
Highlights of Summer Camp:
- Playing King of the Hill on the Wibit.
- Eat In Site Night - We hike or take a rowboat across the lake and get ice cream from Johnson’s, then make hamburgers on charcoal briquettes at our camp.
- Our annual massive Troop 159 Thursday night bonfire.
- Earning lots of Merit Badges
- Friday Night Carnival
Every day at Wah-Tut-Cah gives scouts more skills and builds experiences they will never forget. It also creates friendships that make our troop one whole unit. M.M.
