Troop 206 attends Summer Camp at Camp Ranachqua located at Ten Mile River.
Link To Ten Mile River WebsiteCamp Ranachqua offers all the resources you'd expect from a 12,000 acre scout reservation with the personal attention and atmosphere of a much smaller camp. The combination of these elements make Ranachqua the perfect destination for you and your troop this summer! Lake Nianque serves as home to the most dedicated, spirited and knowledgeable staff around. We know that as Scouts we all look forward to summer camp as the pinnacle of our year and if you and your troop are looking for a place to call home look no further than Camp Ranachqua!
