Celebrating 99 years of Camping on Mount Lemmon at Catalina Council Camp Lawton
When: Sunday, July 5th at 8:00pm through Friday, July 10th following closing campfire
Who: Scouts BSA will celebrate the 99th anniversary with a virtual camp with youth aging 10 ½ to 17 from Southern Arizona.
How: Youth will begin the week by participating in a “live” opening campfire filled with Scouting’s favorite skits, songs and run-ons. Each day will start with a morning ceremony, inspirational quote and then continue into 6 opportunities for youth to learn about a potential career (merit badges).
Throughout the week Scouts will have the opportunity to select from 19 merit badges. Merit Badges will be held virtually by qualified volunteers. Mid-week, Scouts will get a break from learning and enjoy a fun Scouting “Spirit Day’. Spirit Day will allow Scouts to “Do a good Turn”, participate in making their own skit, win scout survivor, learn to cook a Dutch oven desert for their families and much more. The week will close just like many before with a “live” closing campfire that will feature the Retirement of our Colors. BSA is just one of a few honored groups that can present this special ceremony.
Cost- $99 per youth. Each youth will receive a camp patch, t-shirt, walking staff, and coupon for the virtual trading post.

We look forward to seeing you at Camp Lawton this summer. We feel the new program feature will be refreshing to both you and your Scouts.
