Goshen Scout Reservation

Goshen Scout Reservation, a fully accredited camp, is the home of three resident Boy Scout camps, two resident Webelos camps, and the Lenhok’sin High Adventure Base, all centrally located around beautiful, 450 acre, Lake Merriweather. Each summer, Goshen Scout Reservation welcomes thousands of Webelos Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, and adult leaders. In continuous operation since 1967, Goshen Scout Reservation provides the premier summer camp experience in our area.




Troop 1128 will stay at Camp Bowman

Camp Bowman offers camping for 400 and includes a chapel, handicraft area, extensive archery, rifle and shotgun areas, parade field, aquatics, shower house, and direct access to hiking trails. Camp Bowman is our Patrol Cooking Camp and can help your Scouts apply their skills whether they are brand new or in their late teens. There are lots of lessons (teamwork, cooking, cleaning, etc.) to be learned through Patrol Cooking that cannot be learned in a dining hall. Ask your friendly Camp Director if you have questions.

Also, Camp Bowman is the site of our brand new Venturing Advancement Camp! It is the schoolhouse of camp skills that prepares Venturers to tackle High Adventure, whether at Lenhok’sin, or a National High Adventure Program like Philmont, The Summit or Northern Tier. Camp Bowman provides extensive resources for Venturing Advancement and most Venturers can achieve RANGER rank in four weeks with minimal work outside of Camp. When Venturers get halfway to RANGER, Crews may want to recognize them by registering them as having completed the Goshen Venturing Outdoor Bronze Award. The Bowman program abounds with teamwork and leadership development like COPE and ILS(C) and program support including the Mile Swim, Lifeguard Training, Shooting Sports, Scoutcraft/Pioneering, an amazing waterfront and Aquatics program, Conservation/Ecology and access to Lenhok’sin activities when availability allows. It is a great package that fully supports current Venturing advancement to Summit and RANGER!

Medical Information for Goshen

Dear Troop 1128 Parents,

Along with the 2017 re-chartering forms, medical forms for 2017 are also due for all scouts. This applies even if your son recently joined the troop and you filled out 2016 forms.

The forms are the same as last year’s forms with an additional new form the physician will need to fill out at the time of the physical. The new form is listed as item 5 below:

  1. Authorization to Monitor Medications
  2. Part A (1 page)
  3. Part B (2 pages)
  4. Part C (physical)
  5. Health Advisory Form

Note that we also require a copy (front side and back side) of your health insurance card. It is stated on the BSA scout form part B.

At this time we require that you provide items 1-3 as soon as possible. Items 4 and 5, Part C (the physical exam) and the Health Advisory Form are due prior to the Goshen summer camp, although we will gladly accept the form whenever the physical exam is performed. Please make sure to bring the new Health Advisory Form and Part C when you go to your physician for your son’s physical.

The forms are available at the links above. You can either send your scout’s forms electronically or bring a hard copy to the meeting. Note that we also require health forms for any adult who attends an overnight outing. For adults, item 1,  Authorization to Monitor Medications is not required.

If you have questions feel free to contact Troop 1128 Medical Records Coordinators.
