What’s new in 2022?

Not too much on the program schedule is changing. We’ve still got all the old favorites, but we’ve also added some other program elements for this summer. We’re looking forward to, all things willing, being able to bring back Motorboating Merit Badge and Water Sports Merit Badge this summer. We’ve also expanded opportunities for Adult Leader Training at Aquatics and increased the times for Open Boating.

One thing we’re really looking forward to this summer is more fun things to do around camp during evening program. We’ll still have the typical open shoot, open boating, and Merit Badge Make-Ups, but we’ve added some new programs to the evening at the ‘Crafts. Stop by Culture Craft to work on Scouting Heritage MB, challenge someone to a chess game, learn some Goshen History, or hear some of the infamous Camp Bowman Ghost Stories. Visit Handicraft to take Art MB or let your creativity flourish during Open Crafting. New to Scouts? Get your Totin’ Chip at Scoutcraft on a Monday or Thursday evening.
