Rehoboth Scouts Bid Farewell to Camp Cachalot


In October, Rehoboth’s Cub Scout Pack 1 and Boy Scout Troop 13 each spent a weekend at Camp Cachalot in South Carver, MA. These trips marked their final visit, as the camp will be closed by Narragansett Council and sold off by the end of the calendar year. These October camping trips were filled with all of the typical fun activities Rehoboth scouts were used to, such as fishing, swimming, hiking, campfire cooking, and wilderness survival classes. The weather was great and provided ample opportunity to enjoy the camp one last time.

Camp Cachalot will be sorely missed. Generations of Rehoboth scouts have visited its grounds learning invaluable skills while having fun doing so. From summer camp to Klondike derbies, many a cherished memory was made. Many feel that it was their favorite camp and have not taken its closing lightly. Rehoboth’s scouts will still continue their activities at other camps, however, creating connections with those new locations in the process. Camp Cachalot will eventually fade away, but the memories of it for those scouts who enjoyed it will persist for years to come.
