Provisional camping allows Scouts to participate in Camp Long Lake’s program when their troop isn’t at camp.  This program is perfect for Scouts who can’t attend with their unit or for Scouts that wish to come to camp again.

WHAT IS PROVISIONAL?

  • Provisional camp is an opportunity for an individual Scout to experience a full week of summer camp WITHOUT having to come with their Troop.  

HOW DOES PROVISIONAL WORK?

  • Our staff provides a Scoutmaster and Troop leadership for all provisional Scouts in attendance.  

IS THIS THE SAME CAMP EXPERIENCE?

  • Scouts will work on merit badges and rank advancements that are offered during the regular summer season, or participate in any of the older-boy programs.  

WHAT IF A SCOUT ALREADY ATTENDED A CAMP?

  • Provisional camping is also a chance for a Scout to experience a second week of camping…whether to finish merit badges or just enjoy the fun and adventure of the outdoor program. 

PROVISIONAL OPTION

  • An individual Scout signs up to attend Camp Long Lake:

    • Week 5 (7/22/18 – 7/28/18)

    • Week 6 (7/29/18 – 8/04/18)

HOW DO I REGISTER TO ATTEND?

  • The first step is to talk to your parents about it and see what they say.  Provisional camping applications are available at camp, from the Potawatomi Area Council Service Center, as a download (See above).

CAN OTHER SCOUTS, FROM MY TROOP, ATTEND CAMP WITH ME?

  • Sure! Just make sure they are attending camp the same week you are and have gone through the steps explained above. To make sure you are in the same campsite you all have to list your troop number on the application.

WHAT MERIT BADGES CAN I TAKE?

  • Any badge on the list that you qualify for. Please note that there are prerequisites for some badges.  Merit badge cards should be obtained from your Scoutmaster before you come to camp.
