Beantown Camp

The countdown to Beantown Camp opening day continues! Only 2 weeks to go.

For everyone planning to attend who has not yet completed a registration or an Endicott Reservation, it would be a huge help if you get your registration and full payment in ASAP! There are packets to assemble and the college has rooms to prepare. We want your complete camp experience to be smooth sailing from the moment you arrive and the more we can do in advance, the easier for us to make that happen.

If you are registered and would like to add a competition, now would be a great time to do that! Got soul? Why not sign up for the Soul division? That does sound like fun!

Join us for our 17th year! Camp runs from June 27 to July 4 with multiple registration options. If you’ve never done the full week, this will be the year to do it. There is so much that you will not want to miss!

Check website for all the details and registration.
