Gorham Scout Ranch News:

ALBUQUERQUE — Maintained and staffed by the Scouters of the Great Southwest Council, Gorham Scout Ranch is a nationally accredited Scouts BSA summer camp for boys and girls enrolled in Scouting programs.

Located in the western foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains of Northern New Mexico, Gorham Scout Ranch is committed to providing memorable and impactful experiences in a variety of ways each and every summer in its unique and enriching setting.

Because of this commitment, Gorham Scout Ranch is excited to announce a digital alternative to its summer camp program in light of the cancellation of in-person camp programs.

This summer we have registrants from 10 states including New Mexico, Hawaii, New Jersey, Oregon, Minnesota, Georgia, California, Colorado, Texas, and Oklahoma! The first two weeks resulted in 139 youth participants, with three more weeks to come.

Running from the 15th of June to the 17th of July, Gorham Scout Ranch’s Cyber Summer Camp is an engaging and exciting program aiming to provide a socially distant camp experience and help all Scouts make advancements from home this summer.

Our camp staff is committed to providing both prepared material as well as live instruction for each of our 23 different merit badges offered throughout the summer. These include camp staples and uncommon badges that are uniquely fit for this unprecedented program.

Gorham Scout Ranch’s Cyber Summer will get Scouts of any variety out in their communities in a safe and engaging manner during their socially distant summer.

Priced at an affordable $70 initial registration fee ($65 if registering as a troop), and $25 for each subsequent week, Scouts are invited to return for multiple weeks, having the opportunity to make new and exciting advancements each session.

Initial registration includes a unique 2020 t-shirt and patch, 4 merit badge classes, and opportunities to participate in digital non-advancement activities such as campfires, evening programs, honor troop recognition, and an adult-specific scoutmaster merit badge program.
