The NER Outdoor Program Seminar is a long standing tradition. Although this conference is sponsored by the NER, Scouters from all Regions and Areas of the BSA are invited and most welcome to attend.  The program is designed for Council volunteer and professional Scouters with responsibilities for providing quality Council and District year-round outdoor programs, including the full venue of summer possibilities.

The nine outdoor specialty core areas will be represented with gatherings in: Aquatics; Camping – Year-Round  Opportunities;  COPE/Climbing;  Outdoor  Ethics;  Properties  & Rangers; Shooting Sports; Cub Scout Family Outdoor Program; Conservation, including a special Hornaday Advisor Course (limited capacity); and Reeves Conversations.


As you register – you will be able to indicate your choice of core area. In the coming weeks, those registered will receive via E-mail a complete list of the electives and the schedules.


Next in the registration process you will be prompted to select housing for your stay. You may select from a list that includes a stay in cabins, tents, local hotels, or commuting from home. As a special note, the fees for 2018 represent a $15 reduction from the 2016 fees. This year, for those staying in cabins the fee will be $110.00; for those staying in their own tent or in camp tents (on platforms with electricity) $100; those staying in hotels or commuting locally $95; Saturday visitors and other supporters $85; and for those registering for the Hornaday Advisor Course $150. The meals include cracker barrels on Friday and Saturday nights; breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday along with grab and go items for your trip on the way home after the closing session at noon. (the Hornaday fee includes Friday evening dinner along with special training materials associated with that program). If you have special dietary or health needs there is a place to indicate them as you register. A list of hotels in the area can be supplied on request. Those staying in cabins will be using bunk beds. Bring your own bedding, along with personal items including towels, etc. Shower facilities will be available at the pool and in Reeves Lodge.


Uniforms are appropriate wear. Scout activity uniform or business casual are also appropriate. The emergency contact number at Camp Alpine is 201-768-1910.
