Art Explosion – Using the setting of the Handicraft cabin at Camp Wanocksett, boys will create masterpieces sometimes associated with the theme of the event.  Many of our Artist teachers work as Art teachers and are accomplished artists of their own.

Build a Better World - Taught by an Eagle Scout and current Selectman of the Town of Shirley. Duty to Country!

Engineer – Professional Engineers are usually teaching this class.  And there are catapults.  Did I mention catapults?  People who do this for a living can explain why and how certain things are important which adds more than just someone covering requirements.

Into the Woods– This is taught by a retired DCR Forester.  It’s better to hear about what actually goes into fire warnings than just learning what the different stages are.  Plus, you’re in the New Hampshire woods just as the leaves start turning.  Cool.

Earth Rocks – Our Geologist faculty are either professional or heavily into studying Geology.

First Responder – The class is headed by the Acton Venture Crew, who handle first aid for many Massasoit District events.  We use a set defined program, with hands on experience to reinforce the knowledge picked up by the boys.

Adventures in Science– The laws of science are kind of interesting.  Watching them being applied is awesome.

Movie Maker – Are you the next George Lucas? Try this course on for size and have your movie shown to the Camp prior to the evening movie.

Webelos Walk-aboutPrerequisite IMPORTANT- the Scout and parent will need good shoes for hiking as well as a nutritious lunch and water to bring with them.  Course offered ONLY in the morning.  Limited to 20 students total.
