Monthly campouts are held at Valley Pines, a property
owned and managed by the Weymouth Heights Club on behalf and for the express use of the scouts of Troop 2 and their guests.
Our campground in Norwell, located at 505 Grove Street, includes a cabin, outhouse, fire circle, and flagpole.
As you drive into Valley Pines, please remember to stay off of our neighbors’ lawn. Speed limit is 5 mph. Please
turn down radios and respect our neighbors property.
campouts typically begin on Saturday morning at 10 AM or so, and end early Sunday morning around 8 AM - 9 AM. Please pick
up your boy promptly in the morning on Sunday so we can all go home and have a SHOWER!

when we camp.
We will supply tents,
although you're welcome to bring your own. There is also a cabin for sleeping when the weather doesn’t cooperate.
