Camp Bomazeen folks:

Do you know what happened to the rock at Camp Bomazeen that had the engineer castle on it?

Asked from a Guard Engineer friend.
Good morning, Kennebec Valley Scouters, Scouts, friends, supporters.

I just wanted to let you know that there will be a meeting of all interested folks at the Pavilion behind the Elks Lodge in Waterville next Tuesday, 1 September from 6:30 to 8 pm.

Masks and social distancing will be required.

I recommend bug dope of some sort just in case.

No food will be provided.
Be looking for a call to action in the near future. Looking for the best options to follow.
I will try to put together a Bomazeen Community Zoom meeting for Thursday night, July 30th. It will be at 7 pm.

If you would like to be a part of it, please send me an email so I can send you an invitation to be on the meeting.

Send requests to [email protected]

Colby College does not endorse this program or support it (yet), it's just my email address.

We should be able to answers lots of questions at this time.

We may not be able to answer all of your questions, however.
Hi. Back in 1990 when I was in cub scouts I participated in a time capsule event at your location. I just got word that the place is being sold. Will the time capsule be preserved or opened early?
I’m looking for an adult XL or L uniform shirt for a brand new scout of anyone has any handed down shirts available.
Thank you. 😊

In 1945, they were promoting Camp Bomazeen and showed a photo from the prior summer when it was still Camp UNameIt.

This article from 1945, likely from the Morning Sentinel, talks about the 1944 experience at Camp Bomazeen (Then called Camp UNameIt) and a new camp in Canaan.
Text from Below:
Remember Last Summer!
Camping is one of the boy-bonus that go with the Boy Scout movement, Kennebec Area, Boy Scouts of America, that is now conducting its annual financial campaign, is well advanced in this part of its health-giving program. It has two camp sites, one of 40 acres on Lake George in Canaan, the gift of Lewis J Rosenthal of Waterville, and another of 200 acres at Great Pond in Belgrade, which was donated by Dr and Mrs George G Averill, Waterville. The first is site for pioneer camping and ideal for its purpose; the second is in process of development as a site where whole troops may go into camp under special guidance and with facilities for extended stay. It has been named Camp Bomazeen. All Boy scouts have the privilege of going to the other Council camps, Camp William Hinds at Panther Pond in Raymond, or Camp William Nutter at Loon Lake in Sanford. The above picture shows boys reveling in the Great Outdoors at Great Pond last summer.

Great find

HUGE DISCOVERY
Camp Bomazeen History
This notice appeared in the November 25, 1944 copy of the Waterville Troop 136 Troop Newsletter. It was not the front page story. That was an article talking about how Troop 136 had about 100 names of Scouts who have gone on from that troop and were or are in the service.

This article, bottom of page 3 reads as follows:
Probably the biggest news item of the Scout year in this section is that about the purchase of Horse Point for the Scouts. Last June when it was found that the Camporee could not be held at Skowhegan on account of scarlet fever, the Waterville troops decided to hold a camporee of their own and permission was obtained to use the Alexander property at Horse Point. Scout officials were quick to see the advantages of that location for a permanent camp. Plans were quickly made for a summer camp and the first two weeks of August saw much activity at what was called "camp Unamit". This fall we were all pleased to read that the Scouts and that the property had been purchased by Doctor Averill and presented to the Boy Scouts and that the trustees were already raising money to build buildings for a real camp next summer. The sandy beach cannot be equalled anywhere in Maine and the big pines on the hill make an inviting place for a hot summer afternoon. All Scouts in this section of the State are looking forward to a lot of camping at the new camp next summer.
