Our troop’s first experience with the Beach Jam event at Morey’s Pier in Wildwood, NJ was that is was enormously popular with the scouts! The event is held 2x year in May and September. Drawing thousands of Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts from Virginia to Massachusetts, camping was Camporee-style all over the beach. The event also includes two merit badge opportunities (aviation and oceanography), a major bonfire at night, & meals were provided. The main event however was pure fun — having unlimited free access to all rides on two different piers for most of the day! Plenty of play time for beach activites was also regarded for many scouts as a major plus! As the pictures attest, the only thing that was NOT fun, was packing up in a soaking rain on Sunday morning.
