Join us for adventure at Camp Freedom, Heritage Reservation’s Boy Scout resident camp with a dining hall! In a location offering campsites on ridge tops and on waterfronts, Camp Freedom is the perfect place for your troop to camp this summer. A dining hall with a capacity of 400 is responsible for feeding hungry Scouts and Scouters - we'll save you a seat!
Add to that the exciting program we offer - including nearly 60 merit badge offerings, programs like snorkeling, boardsailing, standup paddle boarding, chalk ball, and much more - and it makes perfect sense why thousands of Scouts continue to call Camp Freedom their home away from home each and every summer.
