A Scout joins a Pack because somewhere he or she saw or heard that Scouting provides the excitement of camping in the great outdoors. The Scout wants to share that excitement with buddies in a den as part of a pack. This is what a Scouit expects. Parents like yourself hold the key to fulfilling this understood promise. You can unlock the door to adventure so that one day that Scout will say, “ It was all that I had hoped for and more!” Register now
This program is designed to help Scouts grow in self-confidence and self-direction; develop leadership ability and the strengths expected of a leader, and to afford them the opportunity to test their merit as potential staff members. The program includes orientation, observation, and participation in camp leadership and introduces scouts to new challenges. A great way to prepare for a career on the Yawgoog Staff.

Founded in 1916 as “A Scout Adventureland Forever,” Camp Yawgoog is situated on 1800 acres of beautiful wilderness in Rockville, Rhode Island. Yawgoog is divided into three separate Camps: Three Point, Medicine Bow and Sandy Beach. All three camps share reservation program facilities. For example, the Nature Center is located in Camp Three Point, but is available to all Scouts on the Reservation. Each Camp has its own traditions – a color, songs and cheers – but all three Camps offer the same opportunities to Scouts. The atmosphere of healthy Camp competition is a unique aspect of the Yawgoog experience. Yawgoog Scout Reservation is a part of the Narragansett Council, Boy Scouts of America. The Council is a member of the Rhode Island Association of Camps, and subscribes to its principles of operation.
