Program Registrations Open on BadgeTracker

This is a big day for us - we have officially launched our new program registration portal on BadgeTracker. The BadgeTracker program allows Troops attending Camp Minsi during the summer camp season to sign their Scouts (and adult leaders) up for Merit Badge classes, trainings and other special programs prior to their arrival at camp. The new online system let's you plan your week and customize your own program. The transition to this new online camp programming allows up-to-date tracking of each Scout's progress, helps our staff be prepared for every student, and reduces the use of paper and "blue cards" on the bookkeeping side of the program (making our advancement system more efficient and environmentally-friendly).

As your Troop's week at Camp Minsi approaches, you will find all kinds of new updates to the program listings. We encourage you to log-in often as we'll continue to update the site with new programs, merit badge offerings and other activities as they are scheduled.

Should you have any question regarding BadgeTracker, please contact us.

Beaver Day: Saturday, May 16, 2009

Beaver Weekend (May 15 - 17, 2009) is a unique opportunity for service, fellowship, recreation, and fun. Come explore Camp Minsi, meet the staff, participate in special programs and give back to the camp through friendly service - and the entire event is 100% free!

Camp Minsi will provide you and your unit with a campsite, tents and cots; plus lunch on Saturday will be provided for all those participating in the weekend activities. If you don't want to make an entire weekend out of it, you can also come just for the day on Saturday to participate in the service projects, fellowship events, and other festivities.

If you are interested, please register as soon as possible through the council office. More information is available at MinsiTrails.com or by calling 610.264.8551.

We've Officially Launched!

Camp Minsi is one of the Pocono Mountains' largest Scout Camps. Located on the shores of Stillwater Lake in Pocono Summit, Pennsylvanian, Camp Minsi has been providing quality programs for Scouts since 1949. For 60 years, Camp Minsi has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities, outdoor adventure and lifelong values with fun and fellowship. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and through nearly a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

Camp Minsi is more than just a summer camp, it's an ongoing community of Scouts, Scouters, staff, parents and families; and now Camp Minsi is reaching out to that community on the world-wide-web with original content and updates brought to you by our dedicated summer camp staff. Here we will bring you updates and information about the landmark 60th summer camp session at Camp Minsi and beyond.
