Oreland Troop 1’s summer camp is run by dedicated adult volunteers and Scouts BSA-approved merit badge counselors.
Trained and Committed Adult Leaders
All adult leaders and volunteers have completed the mandated Youth Protection Training and criminal record checks per Scouts BSA and Cradle of Liberty Council requirements. Several adults are qualified Range Safety Officers. Scouts benefit from learning from adults with a wide range of experiences. Adults come from a variety of backgrounds – craftsmen, teachers, attorneys, engineers, dentists, chefs, and more.
