Trading Post

The Trading Post is located on the East end of the Admin building and serves as a general store providing a variety of refreshments, as well as general Camping equipment, t-shirts, and Wente Scout Reservation souvenirs. Scoutmasters may want to provide leadership to Scouts to assure that purchases are reasonable. The Trading Post is available after meals and during program time. The Trading Post accepts cash, checks, as well as Visa & Mastercard.

The Trading Post also has Camping equipment and materials you’ll need to complete those Merit Badges you’re working on. If you forgot your coffee mug, you can pick up a new mug from our friendly staff. Merit Badge books can be purchased here too!
The Lost & Found is located in the Trading Post. Please make sure that all of your Scouts’ gear is marked with their name and Unit number in case it is turned in.
Located in the Handicraft building is the Trading Post annex, known as the Handi-Post, this is where the original trading post was located back in 1964. Here you can buy similar products that we have in the main trading post, including a smaller selection of soda, water, candy and other Camping supplies.
