Beaumont Sizzled in 2013!!! 

The Greater Cleveland Council is proud to announce that Beaumont Scout Reservation Summer Camp 2013 had a 63% increase in attendance this summer.  With 83 merit badges to earn, Scouts from Greater Cleveland Council, Greater Western Reserve Council, Erie Shores Council, Greater Niagara Frontier Council, Moraine Trails Council, and French Creek Council all found something to interest them.

A great summer camp is not possible without a GREAT staff and fantastic troops to make it fun.  The adult leaders who attended Summer Camp 2013 with their troops made camp possible this year by providing leadership for their youth to experience a great week at camp. 

Have you started thinking about summer camp 2014?  It is not too early to work with your troop committee and the Patrol Leader's Conference to look at your troop's summer camp options.  During your discussions, please consider the Beaumont Scout Reservation for your summer camp experience.  Summer Camp 2014 weeks are as follows: 

  •             Week No. 1   June 22-28, 2014

  •             Week No. 2   June 29 - July 5, 2014

  •             Week No. 3   July 6 -12, 2014

  •             Week No. 4   July 13-19, 2014
