Camp Tom Wooten

Provisional Troop

Capitol Area Council always provided a provisional troop during summer camp at Camp Tom Wooten. This gave an opportunity for Scouts to attend camp whose troop was unable to attend and also to provide a troop for those Scouts who wished to stay an extra week or two.  Sometimes the troop was large and sometimes small.

The photos below were provided by John Wittliff who was the provisional Scoutmaster during the summer of 1966. We also want to thankSteven Weber for providing us with some of the names for the provisional troop below.
