From the Camp Director

The 2014 Summer Camp program at Camp Grimes was another year in which the bar was raised. With more than 60 merit badges, a first year camper program like no other, and a staff that exceeds expectations in quality instruction and service, Camp Grimes is a destination camp in the Southeast.

As 2015 approaches, our council will celebrate two milestones. First, we will be celebrating 100 years of scouting in the Mecklenburg County Council. Second, Camp Grimes will host its 40th summer camping season. With such milestones ahead, we are asking you to call Camp Grimes your home in 2015. Our mission is to provide a quality program you can count on to support your troop. And we do that by making sure that our staff is well trained and ready to serve!

If you haven't had the chance to attend Camp Grimes, you are missing out on a tremendous opportunity for your scouts and adult leaders to make lasting memories and experience unique programs. Sign your first year campers up for our Trailblazer program, and have them leave fired up about their scouting career. Visit our Frontier Area and learn about life before the twentieth century. Send your older boys on our new high adventure program to the Summit (see pages 32-33 of the Leader's Guide), or let them spend a week riding ATV's. You can also count on great food, and one of the most beautiful lakes you will find at any scout camp. The 2015 Camp Grimes Leader's Guide is now available online. Sign up online before it's too late!
