For over 60 years Camp William Falconer has been an important part of the 180 family of Scouting. Our Scouts enjoy the 20+ acres of field and woods with a running stream to play in all year round.

Located on Alden St in Ludlow, the camp is convenient to local attractions including the Basketball Hall of Fame, Springfield Armory Museum, and Six Flags.

Pack 180 uses Camp Falconer for Webelos and Pack camping as well as Den meetings and summer time programs.

Camp Falconer is Troop 180’s home for most of the year. In our forest are separate sites for Patrols, and a Leaders site. Each site has a fire ring. The trails field, and stream are perfect venues to learn outdoor skills or engage in interpatrol activities.

Crew 180 also meets and camps at Camp Falconer and finds it an ideal facility for presenting the weekend Venture Leadership Skills Course as well as the American Red Cross Wilderness First Aid.

Camp Falconer features a brick building with oil heat, flush toilets and a kitchen area with electric stove and refrigerator.

Camp Falconer has been approved for Cub Scout Camping and has hosted Cub Scout Day Camp, B.A.L.O.O. Training, and Shu-Shu-Ga.

The fee is $125/weekend and includes campsites and the camp’s heated building. Unlike other Scout camps you don’t need to be  gone early in the morning; stay untilSunday supper if you want! (or even later).  Weekend reservations can be made by calling Bill Vershon at 583-3736.

A historical note is that this is the 2nd camphouse.  The first building was destroyed by fire on December 15th, 1951 when embers fell through the hearth and ignited wood soda cases stored under the building.  In an era before not only cell phones, but in a part of town with few homes at the time, it took time to summon the fire department.  The building was a complete loss.

Another fire was experienced when vandals broke into the building and set fire to mattresses after taking them from bunk beds and piling them on the floor.  A careful observer can see where the wood flooring has been replaced.  When the roof was replaced several years ago rafters still bearing the scars of the fire were also replaced and new decking installed.
