Every year, during the week of the July 4 holiday, Troop 624 goes to Sinoquipe Scout Reservation in Fort Littleton, Pennsylvania. Troop 624 also spends a weekend, usually in January, cabin camping at Sinoquipe.
Sinoquipe (pronounced sin-oh-qwipee) is an Algonquin word for “builder of men”. One of the reasons we attend camp is to commemorate Lord Baden-Powell’s initial camp during which he tested his new Scouting program at Brown Sea Isle. Camp Sinoquipe is owned and operated by the Mason-Dixon Boy Scout Council located in Hagerstown, MD. The camp has a beautiful lake, a new dining hall, troop campsites with platform tents, and a relaxing wooded setting. Scouts can learn water skills such as swimming, canoeing, and BSA kayaking, as well as first aid, emergency preparedness, pioneering, cooking, scoutcraft, handicraft, public speaking, plumbing, archery, rifle & shotgun shooting, ecology, and many more.
2017 Sinoquipe Winter Cabin Camp will be Jan. 27-29 & we will be in the newly restored Altenderfer Cabin!
