Summer Camp

Troop 19 attends Boy Scout Summer camp at Canyon Camp which is within the Blackhawk Area Council. The camp is located near Stockton in northwestern Illinois. This extended camping experience begins on Sunday and ends on the following Saturday. Canyon Camp is one of the highlights of the Scouting year.

Canyon Camp offers a combination of activities suitable for younger and older Scouts. In addition to a first year camper (Canyon Rangers) program, and a first-class emphasis program, the camp provides a wide range of merit badges in scout-craft, shooting, nature, and waterfront activities. Canyon Camp also has an Outdoor Wilderness League for experienced Scouts and Scouters that can include rappelling, CPR, a canoe or kayak trip, and team building exercises.
