Troop Camping

We are excited to welcome troops back to Camp Bette Perot, Camp Gambill, Camp Rocky Point, and Camp Kadohadacho (Camp K) beginning November 6-8! 

We are offering bundled package pricing per person which includes housing and available activities for a special low price to celebrate the reopening of our properties to troops. Group sizes are limited to fewer than 10 people (girls and adults included), and a variety of new protocols are in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please review both the weekend description at the camp you are interested in camping at and the Ultracamp FAQs for November troop camping for more information.

There are three easy steps to get your troop out to camp in November:

  1. Add everyone that you will be bringing to camp to your Ultracamp account before making your reservation.  (Then, make your reservation. Payment is due in full at the time it is made.)

  2. Before you come, complete and upload the two required COVID-19 forms for each person in your group along with your required troop camping and first-aid/CPR/AED forms and certifications to your Ultracamp account.

  3. Come to camp and have a fabulous time!
*Each troop camping group must have at least one adult that has completed TR301, and at least one adult that has a current certification in First Aid/ AED/CPR.
