About the Camp Cachalot Alumni Association

The Camp Cachalot Alumni Association is a not-for-profit organization by and for the extended family of Cachalot Scout Reservation, Plymouth, Massachusetts. It is dedicated to preserving the history, traditions, and continued operation of "the place we know so well…"

The Association was founded in 2004 after several years of planning, with the express purpose of providing support for the camping facilities of Narragansett Council, BSA, especially Camp Cachalot. It operates under the auspices of the Narragansett Council. For more information about the structure and operation of the Association, please consult our bylaws.

Our primary purpose is to benefit the camping facilities of the Narragansett Council; specifically, Camp Cachalot. We provide support in many ways, including:

  • bringing the extended Cachalot family together for fun and fellowship, and to share the traditions of Cachalot
  • recording and preserving the history of Camp Cachalot and the Councils and Camps that came before it, including
    • Camp Noquochoke
    • Moby Dick Council
    • Cachalot Council/New Bedford Area Council
    • Massasoit Council/Fall River Area Council
  • providing scholarships to senior summer camp staff members to help maintain continuity in the program
  • establishing an endowment to provide support for Cachalot in the years to come
  • providing volunteer manpower for projects at Camp

Membership in the Association is open to any individual who has visited or has otherwise been involved with Camp Cachalot or any of the predecessor camps or Councils. More information about membership can be found on our membership pages on this web site.
