What is Brownsea? 

It is a unique and exciting hands on approach designed to teach youth leadership skills through the actual practice and use of Scout Skills. Skills most closely concentrated on are camping, hiking, nature study, pioneering, and cooking. This course closely parallels the first Scout camp conducted by Lord Baden Powell in 1907. This program places special emphasis on Scout skills, teaching and practice; the purpose of Scouting; and the role of the patrol method within the troop program. It is not done by classroom lecture, but rather by programs of skill, leadership exercise, and patrol competition. Scouts who complete the program will have a better awareness of their own strengths and weaknesses for their personal leadership styles.

COURSE: Sunday July 1, 2018, (12:00 Noon) through Saturday, July 7, 2017 (10:00am) at TL Storer Scout Reservation, Barnstead New Hampshire.

TROOP: The Brownsea Scouts will sleep in tents prepare their own meals by the patrol method and will be expected to live and act as First Class Scouts. The Brownsea Troop is set at 40 scouts.

REQUIREMENTS: All Scouts need to be First Class or above and have attended a one-week summer camp experience. Ages should be between 13-16 years old. We are looking for those Scouts that will be the future leaders of their home troops.

PRE-TRAINING: Once accepted, the Scouts and Troop leader/parent will be required to attend a Brownsea meeting in May/June 2018. Specific questions will be answered at this meeting and a skill assessment of Scout needs will be given.

COST: The cost is $475 per Scout. Since this training experience greatly benefits the home unit it is suggesting that the troop pay all or part of the fee.This is a Northern NeXus specialty week and you can get 20% off if you have the New England Adventure Card.


APPLICATIONS: Brownsea Applications may be downloaded here or received via email from Ken Reardon. The Scout, Scoutmaster, and parent should fill out the appropriate sections prior to submission. Submit completed application to Ken Reardon at The limit of learners per home troop is set at two Scouts. If the home troop wishes to submit additional learners to be placed on a waiting list.

DEADLINE:  Balance of fee due by June 1, 2018. If balance is not met, forfeiture of space and deposit can result. All requests for refunds must be made in writing prior to the beginning of the course and submitted to the council office.
