LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT CAMP
An essential part of the Improved Scouting Program is developing the art of Leadership in
the Troop Leader Council and the Leadership Corps.
Onteora Scout Reservation will provide this opportunity to
Senior Patrol Leaders and members of the Leadership Corps in a high level Leadership
Development Camp, each period this summer. This 14 day seminar hopes to "change your
way of thinking" in stimulating the creative growth of young men. This up

DELAWARE CANOE TRIP
Shooting the rapids of Skinners Falls, the fast water around Tuston, Narrowsburg and

exciting and fun-filled activity for our "expert" Canoeists. This 10 day trip
down the Delaware is a ever varying experience and is the highlight of the special
programs. Each period is limited to 20 older Scouts. Cooking, hiking, exploring and just

for any redblooded Scout or Explorer. Try it, you will never forget it.
