Boy Scout Programs

Sitting just off of Sunset Boulevard less than thirty minutes from the heart of Hollywood, Camp Josepho is as close as camping gets to the movies. We have pulled some of the enormous talent in the film industry to lend some of their expertise to our camps teaching unusual merit badges such as Moviemaking, Programming, Robotics  and  Game Design, as well as special offerings for First Year Scouts. Camp Josepho is offering all of our Boy Scout Programs during two sessions this summer.
Session 1: July 6-9 or Session 2: July 13-16.

 

PARENT GUIDE FOR ALL PROGRAMS

 

First Year Resident Camp

For newly-bridged Boy Scouts or beginners to Scouting we have First Year Summer Camp, which provides an easy transition into leaving home for Boy Scout Summer Camp without the long distance and preparation that may be too much for a newly bridged Boy Scout. This camp focuses on Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class Advancement requirements that would be difficult to get in another setting. Scouts will also work the Swimming Merit Badge, an important prerequisite for other Aquatics awards. Use this as a primary camp or as a supplemental camp to prepare your First Year Scouts for Summer Camp later in the year. Cost: $275/scout, $90/adult. Registration

Choose from Session 1: July 6-9 or Session 2: July 13-16

Moviemaking Experience

Have you ever wondered what it takes to be behind the camera for a feature film or television show? Do you think about the camera angles and pans, pacing and sutures that build tension and excitement in a scene?

If yes, join us for the four-day Moviemaking experience at Camp Josepho this summer. This overnight resident camp links Boy Scouts with local film industry professionals to make a short film and earn three merit badges not typically offered at other summer camps: Moviemaking, Theater and Communications (an Eagle-Required Merit Badge!). Cost: $275/scout, $90/adult. Registration

Camp Josepho will offer some of the newest merit badges this summer in a four-day mini-camp cluster.
