Sidney Winter Trail

 

Do you have new Scouts who need a “jump start” toward Boy Scout Advancement? Our Sidney Winter program fills that need. Named after Baden-Powell Council's first Scoutmaster, Rev. Sidney Winter of Owego, the Sidney Winter Trail offers the Scout an opportunity to complete the requirements listed below toward his Tenderfoot, Second Class or First Class rank. This program lasts all day and includes first aid, basic scoutcraft, swimming activities, as well as time for merit badge work and free time for the scout to use as they wish. Through active and exciting hands-on activity, our Sidney Winter staff will make sure your first-year campers have an experience that will make them want to come back to camp year after year!
