You will be brought to a page with full desciptions of the facilities at that camp and some tips on how to make the most of your event.
All usage of our camps are reserved through the Scout Achievement Center, including equipment rental, tours, and hiking. Because of high demand of our facilities and our need to know who and when the properties are being used, we require all reservations to be made with the Application for Camp Usage at least 72 hours in advance and accompanied by applicable payment.
Our camps have high usage nearly every weekend, so we encourage you to make your reservation as far in advance as possible to confirm the facilities you want.
Here are the steps to make your camp facility reservation...
Safety is our number one priority, and it is important to us to provide a great experience to everyone who uses our camps. All our camp properties are operated following the policies and guidelines of the Boy Scouts of America. In addition, we have established several guidelines to ensure a smooth reservation process, promote safety, and protect our camps and equipment for future use.
It is important that everyone who visits camp be aware of the camp usage guidelines. Not only will you help us promote safety and a pleasant visit, but knowing and understanding these guidelines will help you know what to expect and be prepared for any restrictions that may be applicable to your event planning.Last Updated on Saturday, 14 August 2010 09:46
Rental costs for all of the camp facilities are reasonable. Scouting units and chartered organizations receive membership pricing, and camping for Scouts at council camps is always free. Non-profit groups also receive a reduced rate and are encouraged to hold their events at our camps. Corporate groups will find that our facility costs are very attractive and the programs available make our camps the perfect place to hold your business event.
While the camp facilities can be rented for most of the year, there are several times, including during the summer camp season, when the camps are not available for reservations. Knowing when the camps are open to outside groups can help you plan your event and pick the best time for your outing...Last Updated on Thursday, 24 January 2013 16:16
