Hey Everyone, My name is Alex Moulvi and I will be serving as the Program Director for the 2020 season of the James C. Justice National Scout camp. Feel free to send any additional questions about Program or suggestions for things you might like to see to my email at alex.moulvi@scouting.org.

Will there be opportunity to take swim test for those who miss our unit test?
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director

Hey Steve! Adult leaders are required to tent separate from youth participants as normal, and may bring their own camping equipment to camp (given that equipment complies with the Guide to Safe Scouting). If you would like more camping equipment than what is allocated to your unit automatically, you can provide that information prior to camp or tell your staff member helping you on arrival day. We can also provide additional camping equipment at any point during your stay.
