Troop 464 is off to summer camp in Wehinahpay Mountain Camp near Sacramento, New Mexico. The name, Wehinahpay, has been used many times by the Conquistador Council for their camps. The camp came to the Sacramento Mountains is 1927. The camp is situated in the southern part of New Mexico about four miles SW from the sleepy little town of Sacramento, boasting around 50 residents. It is also about 35 miles almost due East of the White Sands Missile Range and sits at almost 8,500 feet above sea level and shaded in pines and aspens.
Summer camp gives the scouts an opportunity to work on and complete a large array of merit badges such as: public speaking, fishing and fly fishing, environmental Science and Soil and Water Conservation, Archery, Shot Gun Shooting, Rifle Shooting, Art, Automotive Maintenance, and a host of other merit badges.
Another program of interest is “Brave Trails” designed to give new Scouters a jump start with foundational outdoor skills, scouting basics and introductions to opportunities that wait for them if they continue their Scouting career. It is made specifically for anyone coming to camp for the first time or working on their rank advancement for Tenderfoot, Second Class, or First Class.
The troop will be at camp for the week.
