Boy Scout Camp Bomazeen on Great Pond in Belgrade recently received a matching grant of $10,000 to upgrade and improve the facilities from the Douglas and Rita Sukeforth Family Foundation, according to a news release from Pine Tree Council’s Scott Adams. Camp Bomazeen will celebrate its 70th year of serving the Boy Scouts of Pine Tree Council, according to a news release from the Bomazeen Old-Timers.

According to the release, at the end of summer 2003 Camp Bomazeen closed as a resident camp. In 2011, summer programs were reintroduced in the form of Cub Scout Day Camp. Then, in 2013, Weblos residence Camp was reintroduced. Finally, after 11 years, Boy Scout Camp became a reality.

The camp program is a compilation of specialty programs. Some of the programs offered this year will include Junior Maine Woodsman, 1830 Bushcraft, Building Trades, Eagle Week and many other programs, according to the release. It is the volunteers of Kennebec Valley District and the generous people of central Maine that have made this possible.

Donations for this project can be made to the Bomazeen Old Timers, c/o Scott Adams, treasurer, P.O. Box 6134, China Village, ME 04926.
