Winter CampA Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.

If being outdoors in summer heat of July isn't your thing, we invite you to experience Winter Camp at Camp Ho Non Wah. Charleston is very seasonable all-year round, and December is quite comfortable here, though we wouldn't advise a dip in the Bohicket... unless you're taking part in the Polar Bear Swim!

Winter Camp does offer a full complement of merit badge courses, many of which are not offered in the warmer months. A slightly smaller camp population means more hands-on time and individualized attention for each camper, but we recommend registering early as space in this highly sought-after session fills up quickly! This is a great option for troops looking for a unique camp experience or for the provisional scout looking to wrap up a few loose ends before his Eagle Scout Project.
