Location: Yawgoog Scout Reservation, Camp Sandy Beach

Our annual Summer Camp event is just around the corner! This is possibly one of the biggest and most important events in the entire scout year. This is a week-long trip, in our case to Yawgoog Scout Reservation, on which you are presented with a variety of different activities and merit badge classes.

This is the fourth year our troop is going to this summer camp, the last time being in 2022.

Yawgoog Scout Reservation

Yawgoog Scout Reservation is a 1,800-acre reservation for scouting located in Rockville, Rhode Island, and operated by the Narragansett Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Founded in 1916, Yawgoog is the fifth-oldest Boy Scout camp in the United States.

Yawgoog is divided into three separate Camps: Camp Three Point, Camp Medicine Bow, and Camp Sandy Beach. All three camps share reservation program facilities. For example, the Nature Center is located in Camp Three Point, but is available to all Scouts on the Reservation. Each Camp has its own traditions: a color, songs, and cheers, but all three Camps offer the same opportunities to Scouts. The atmosphere of healthy Camp competition is a unique aspect of the Yawgoog experience.
