Patriots Path Council gears up for 2021 Outdoor Adventure

In a part of our country that is steeped in Revolutionary and Scouting history, Patriots Path Council of Cedar Knolls NJ plans to write a new chapter in the outdoors by offering several unique and exciting opportunities in 2021.

With several options, Scouts from all across the council can participate this coming summer with an experience that fits their time needs, as well as offering specialized programs.

Camp Winnebago in Rockaway NJ plans to conduct 4 weeks of Scouts BSA resident camp and also offer day-long experiences for Scouts who wish to enjoy camp individually. Camp Somers in Stanhope NJ also plans to offer the same format. Remote and convenient busing locations accommodate the individual scout’s transportation to and from these camps for the day experience.  

Camp Wheeler, also in Stanhope, plans to open for five weeks of Cub Scout Day camp. In addition, Patriots Path Council plans to also offer six weeks of regional day camps as well.

The council is also planning an expedition to Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia this coming July for 22 youth to participate in the Orion Project.

With all of this, the council also operates Sabattis Adventure Camp in the Adirondack mountains near Long Lake NY.  Canoe treks, white water rafting, hiking treks, seaplane tours and hot air balloon experiences are all part of the possibilities at Sabattis Adventure Camp.

Not forgetting 2020, the council is working with various agencies to ensure camper safety and security in preventing potential Covid-19 issues. With this comes great planning and communications.

“With Scouts from different states and constituencies, its challenging to keep in touch with all local health agencies”, says Keith Dlugosz, Camping Director. Keith says, “Our goal is to provide the safest possible experience, whether its High Adventure or Cub Scout Day Camp. Safety is the most important consideration”.

With a very ambitious agenda for 2021, Patriots Path Council is meeting the challenge to get youth outdoors again and offer multiple programs to meet individual needs.
