Camp Bowman, Goshen Scout Reservation
Most Troop 167 Scouts attend Camp Bowman every year. It is a Boy Scout and Venture Scout resident camp located on 450-acre Lake Merriweather in the mountains west of Staunton, Virginia. Scouts camp, cook all meals over wood fires, and clean up, in small patrols, led by older scouts. Adult leaders and other parents are there for guidance and safety, and counsel and monitor the youth leaders who directly lead the other scouts. Scouts sleep in two-man platform tents with cots. The camp is accredited annually by the BSA and must also meet State of Virginia requirements. Scouts attend with their units and enjoy all that Scout camp has to offer. They not only earn many merit badges at camp, they also have a great time!
