SEARCH FOR THE LOST TUCKAHOE TRIBE
Scouts have always longed to explore the unknown, and stories about brave explorers are among the favorites of boys everywhere. Indiana Jones and Daniel Boone remain iconic characters, typifying our ideas about bold adventurers. Even characters like Tarzan and Mowgli represent the adventurer’s spirit, for they truly became one with the wilderness. Your Scouts will undoubtedly want to get into the very same spirit, and we encourage you to work with them to prepare themed costumes that they can wear to campfires and other campwide events.
From the barren wastelands of the Arctic tundra to the lush jungles of the tropics, real adventurers have been pushing back the boundaries of civilization for centuries. Now – with a Scout’s imagination, of course – there remains just a single wilderness left to be explored: Tuckahoe. Legend has it that a magnificent civilization once existed deep in the heart of this mysterious land. If those legends are true, then surely they left behind great wealth and wisdom, just waiting to be found. Every Scout will be assigned to one of our expedition teams to search for clues of the lost Tuckahoe Tribe.
But what if those treasures fall into the wrong hands? It just so happens that a rival group of explorers, led by the evil Doctor Morton von Maligno, is also searching for the Tuckahoe tribe. Dr. Maligno plans to plunder the ruins to enrich himself, and all can imagine the damage he’ll do. Your Scouts will need to learn their outdoor skills quickly to help save Tuckahoe from the ravages of his greedy treasure-hunters.

- Cub World Overnight Excursion
While your campsite will serve as “home base” during your stay at Tuckahoe, every pack can schedule an overnight excursion to sleep in one of our Cub World theme areas. Reservations will be honored in the order they are received until all spaces are full, so don’t wait until the last minute to stake your claim! Please indicate your preference when you register for camp, and expect to be informed of your assignment on the evening of your arrival.The Fort and Castle, perennial favorites, each accommodate 40 campers. The Teepee Village has space for 36 campers, while the Pirate Ship can accommodate 20. Please note that, while not quite as weatherproof as our other options, in fair weather the teepees and ship can provide overnight experiences that are impossible to beat!Participants in this program will transport their own gear from the campsite, so we suggest limiting your overnight gear to what you can comfortably carry (a sleeping bag and pillow would suit most campers). You should also plan to awaken early enough to return to your campsite, clean up, and still make it to our morning flag raising ceremony on time.
- Family Night Barbecue
What better way to conclude your stay at Tuckahoe than to host your family and friends for a little taste of the camping experience? Guests may arrive between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm on the final day of each session and, for a small charge, join us for dinner. Guests may even plan to stay for the closing campfire show! (Please purchase your BBQ Tickets at the Trading Post. BBQ Ticket Prices are: $5 for Youth, $7 for Adult, and youth under 5 eat for free!)

Who Can Go?
Tuckahoe welcomes all Cub Scouts, Webelos, and their Adult Partners! Cub Scout Camp is for boys who will be entering first through third Grades in the fall & Webelos Camp is for those entering fourth or fifth Grade. Separate sessions for Cubs and Webelos allow us to offer programs designed specifically for them! We encourage all Scouts to register for camp with their Pack or Den. Children not registered in the BSA cannot attend camp.
The Boy Scouts of America require at least two adult leaders to be in camp with each unit at all times. We encourage one adult for every four Scouts but require a minimum of one adult for every six Scouts. (Many units bring one adult for every Scout.)
All adults and parents planning to attend New Birth of Freedom Council summer camp programs need to obtain those background clearances now mandated by state law. Click here for more information.
If a pack brings eight Scouts to camp, TWO Adults camp for FREE! For every additional eight Scouts that attend, one additional adult camps for free!
In Council families requesting financial assistance (up to 50% of the camp fee) must submit a Campership Application by Monday, April 2, 2018.
How To Sign Up For Camp
All registrations for summer camp are handled through our online system called Tentaroo. If your unit does not have an account, please first create an account, then you’ll be able to reserve your space at summer camp.
