Camp Descriptions

CAMP PMI is one of two Webelos Camps. Camp PMI is situated at the foot of the Viewing Rock Trail, which leads to one of the most amazing views on the Eastern seaboard. Additionally, Camp PMI provides programming in aquatics, scoutcraft, bbs, archery, ecology and handicraft. The staff works very hard to ensure that Webelos have a great time both summers they come to Goshen and have instituted a stellar Second-Year program.

Get more information by visiting the Camp PMI page.

CAMP ROSS is the second of two Webelos Camps and offers camping for 300. Our facilities include aquatics with a 23’ trampoline, nature area, handicraft area, archery range, BB range, and direct access to hiking trails. In 2014, we will be building a new Campfire area. We also have a recently refurbished chapel where Packs can participate in the Duty to God program. Camp Ross is great fun for Webelos and their leaders and the staff helps to provide an added level of comfort as these young men prepare to bridge into Boy Scouts.

CAMP BAIRD is home to Lenhok’sin High Adventure, a nationally accredited high adventure program for youth age 13 and above. Baird serves as base camp for 4- or 7-day trail treks. The treks offer an opportunity to hike through Goshen to up to five different peaks while surveying some of the 35,000 acres of surrounding state wildlife game lands. Outposts give youth the chance to try blacksmithing, lumberjacking, rock climbing, mountain biking, kayaking, shooting black powder rifles, throwing tomahawks, and experiencing life as it was in a Civil War camp.
