Sasquatch Sighted about 20 miles from Camp Seph Mack
Local Big Foot spotting--October 2022--Ghost Town Trail, near Nanty Glo, PA
This fall, a report appeared on the BigFoot Field Research Organization website, of a couple walking along the Ghost Town Trail between Nanty Glo and Ebensburg when a large mysterious creature with a large stride appeared on the trail ahead of them. 
The full report can be found on the BigFoot Field Research website at: BFRO Report 75057: Very credible (2 witness) daylight sighting of a sasquatch walking along bike trail 60 east of Pittsburgh -- Ghost Town Trail

The sighting was on October 5, exactly one week after the Squatch Camp announcement.  Is that a coincidence?  Or is there something more to our squatchy friend?  Check out the story above and join us for the camp webinar series starting on Wednesday, January 25!

The J. Sephus Mack Center for Sasquatch Research at Camp Seph Mack 2024 is a resident camp program with unique adventure and advancement offerings.  The planning committee for this adventure is world-class and all they need is you and your scouts!  As this is a completely different program, information will be released on a regular basis, but there may be changes as the program evolves.  We ask for your patience, and welcome suggestions to improve communications and program for the event.

Q:  What’s the deal with Sasquatch?
A:  The J. Sephus Mack Sasquatch Research Center is the specialized program.  Conceptually, hunting sasquatch will be a part of the program, to provide a unique program experience for the participants.  While they are looking for clues and signs, they will also be working on rank requirements and merit badges. 

Q:  My unit made an initial commitment, what do we need to do  next?
A:  Early in 2023, we will announce the fee payment schedule that will require a deposit to hold your Troop’s spot at the camp for 2024.  The early commitment will greatly assist our program team with their development.  We will also be looking for holding spots for youth with a nominal deposit per youth.  Units will receive letters about these deposits.  In the meantime, be sure to sign up for the Squatchin’ Newsletter, Zoom Webinars, and the CSM Adventure Base Facebook page.

Q:  What if my Troop doesn’t want to attend, but my child does what to attend?
A:  Scouts absolutely do not need to attend with their troops.  If your Scout wants to attend, we highly encourage them to sign up as well.  There will be appropriate registration link for individual youth.
