Are You New to Camp Kootaga?
Is this your first visit to Camp Kootaga, or has it been awhile since you have been in Camp? First we say “WELCOME!” We hope you find the Kootaga experience a positive one. If you have any questions about our camp, please contact us. Our staff will work hard to make your time with us a memorable one. Before you plunge into our Leaders guide, we would like to impart some useful information about our camp that sometimes gets lost in the fine print.
Each of our campsites have a shelter with picnic tables to allow your troop an area to prepare meals or congregate out of the weather. Although potable water is available in each site, electricity is not available. We provide standard BSA issue camp wall tents with tent platforms for campers (Scouts and Leaders). We do not provide camp cots or mattresses.
Trail to Adventure
To help spread the ideals of Scouting to young and old alike, we encourage all Scouts new to Camp Kootaga to attend this unique ceremony of our camp. This is a great way to create lasting memories for you and your unit. This ceremony is for all campers new to Camp Kootaga, no matter how old. It is our time to introduce new campers to Camp Kootaga traditions and start them on a positive Kootaga experience. Young Scouts can bring a leader or older Scout if they are the only new Scout in your unit.
STEM is part of an initiative the Boy Scouts of America has taken on to encourage the natural curiosity of youth members and their sense of wonder about these fields through existing programs. From archery to welding, Scouts can’t help but enjoy the wide range of STEM-related activities. To support this initiative, the BSA developed the Nova Awards program so that youth members have fun and receive recognition for their efforts.
