Looking for the perfect space to host your next scout weekend? Our location on Virginia's beautiful and nature-filled Eastern Shore makes us the ideal site to engage your group in adventure and help youth develop the leadership skills at the heart of scouting programs. Attend one of our scheduled badging trips or create a custom program to fit your troop's needs. Either way, your scout will embark on an adventure they won't forget! Scouts must attend the program with an adult chaperone.
