Venturing Summer Camp

It is with great pleasure that the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council, BSA presents you Goose Pond Scout Reservation Venturing Camp (GPSR-VC). Venturing Week at GPSR, a six time Nationally Accreaded Venturing Camp. The Northeastern Pennsylvania Council is dedicating a week of summer camp for those of us that wear "green;"   Goose Pond Scout Reservation staff is chartered Venture Crew 720, for the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council, and we take great pride in our ability to have the finest Scouts and Ventures' on staff. There is no finer summer camp staff in the Northeast Region. Since Scouting began 100 years ago, the summer camp experience has been the cornerstone of learning, fellowship and fun. Goose Pond Scout Reservation mission is to continue that tradition.

The Venturing staff  makes this camp the most diverse series of summer camps in the history of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council, with camps for Boy Scouts and Venturers. This milestone will be achieved by sound camp management and the program being youth led.

As Advisers of Crews and Ships, we allow our youth to lead our units. GPSR-VC does the same.  Venturing week  hosts several treks to choose from that have a wide range of appeal. Newly formed Crews can focus on leadership and teamwork, Crews new to Scouting can take have a week dedicated to experiencing both Northeastern Pennsylvania Council camp in our Camps Adventure, for those looking for more high adventure we are offering both out island and camping / hiking treks as well.

The staff of Goose Pond Scout Reservation is looking forward to giving you a week to remember. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
