Goshen Scout Reservation

Goshen Scout Reservation contains three resident Boy Scout camps and two resident Webelos camps located around the 450 acre Lake Merriwether in addition to Lenhok'sin High Adventure. Each summer, Goshen Scout Reservation comes alive for thousands of Webelos Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, and adult leaders. In continuous operation since 1967, Goshen Scout Reservation is truly the premier camp in the area. Visit us for the 2017 camping season!

Camp Ross

Camp Ross is a week-long Webelos/Arrow of Light Overnight Camp with six weeks of operation during the summer. We are located on the beautiful Goshen Scout Reservation and cater to Webelos scouts and Adult Leaders. 

Packs eat each meal in a dining hall that serves hot and fresh meals every day.Packs stay in camp sites equipped with canvas platform tents, a dining fly, and two army style cots. Throughout the week, Scouts learn outdoor skills that are necessary for the Scouting program as well as team work and confidence building exercises. You will have the opportunity to sign up for a variety of activity badges as well.

Our Mission Statement

Our mission statement was developed during the Summer of 2012 and it actively guides all of our programs and activities at Camp Ross.

"The mission of Camp Ross is to give scouts a great week and introduction to Scouting"

Travis Andrus, a former 12 year staff member and 3 time Camp Ross Camp Director developed this mission to guide Camp Ross in bettering all Scouts and Leaders who go through our program. Camp Ross does our best to live up to this mission everyday throughout the year. People often see camp as a place for fulfilling requirements and advancing in scouting, Camp Ross takes both of those to the next level. Fulfilling requirements and advancing in scouting are important at Camp Ross but we believe that the cornerstone of our program is based in fun and engaging activities that will keep scouts in the program for many years to come.

Below is a sneak preview of what Camp Ross meals are like. Enjoy!
