"Welcome to the summer camping season at the Thunder Scout Reservation. We have a
tremendous facility for you and your troop to experience the best part of Scouting's
outdoor program...Summer Camp!!! Many activities await you and your Scouts at Camp
Thunder. Everything from the thrill of experiencing the natural beauty of our Reservation,
to earning merit badges, to completing rank advancement, to taking part in the special
activities we have planned. Leaders, whether on board for the entire week or just for one
night, will also have plenty of activities available."
Our camp staff is committed to providing you the best possible program. Our goal is to
be friendly and responsive to the needs of your unit and to set an excellent example of
what good Scouts should be to all those attending camp. The staff has been carefully
selected and trained to assist in your stay. They stand ready to help you at any time.
We continue to adjust, expand, and develop our program. We feel that the 2000 program
will be our best and most energetic effort ever. Please take time to prepare for your
adventure at Camp Thunder. In order for us to best meet your needs, it will be important
to plan your troop activities and advancement. Please take time before camp to determine
what your troop program requirements are and communicate that information to us before you
arrive. That will give us the opportunity to assist you in meeting your goals.
If you have any questions, special needs, or just want to talk about your week in camp,
feel free to contact us. We will be happy to work with your troop in any way we can.
Again, we are glad to have you on board as a member of the Thunder team in 2000.

"Camp Hiawatha but it is a "back to basics" camp where patrols do their
own cooking on sheepherder stoves. They offer several High Adventure trips using the camp
as a base. One to Grand Island, another to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, and a
river canoeing trip ( no whitewater). This year they had an International Venturing Camp
that included a troop from Denmark. Last year they had a troop from Zimbabwe. The staff
will accomodate practically anything. Camp director "grampa" Joe Erickson is
just fantastic, call him with your needs and he will bend over backwards to help you.

offer. One of our eight well designed, Self contained campsites is waiting to provide a
unique setting for your troop. Patrol cooking on sheepherder stoves, swimming in Bunting
Lake and a variety of outdoor programs are also blended into our rustic setting. Let the
whisper of the wind in the pines lull you to sleep and the hauntingly beautiful call of
the Bunting Lake loons awake you to another day of fun filled adventu
