The Winter Camping Experience

Whether it's chopping wood or hiking the trails, the winter camp experience offers something different for everyone. Cold weather camping, rifle shooting and orienteering courses are but a few of the other activities that round out Winter Camping at HSR.

Not just for Scouting groups . . . our camps play host to other organizations. Case in point, the Hamilton Young Marines out of the Baltimore, MD area joined us the weekend of February 20, 2009. Staying at Camp Ware, they took advantage of the facilities at both camps. Here the youth participated in team building activities supported by Chester County Council Crew 23. The Young Marines had an outstanding time!
