The Base Camps are a collaborative project of three independent Scout councils that are part of the Boy Scouts of America. The camps are owned and operated by their respective council; each a non-profit corporation based in their state.
Programs at our Base Camps are open to ALL youth and families, you do NOT need to be a member of Scouting to participate. We seek to provide a unique, welcoming environment for families of all kinds to experience nature, build character, learn life skills, equip youth for success in life, and create lifelong memories.
While at Base Camp, you will have the opportunity to learn about Scouting programs in your community. If your child loves Base Camp, they may want to become a Scout! You can learn more about Scouting at www.BeAScout.org.
Base Camp’s Diversity Relationship to Scouting
Families define their values. Each family's experiences, heritage, personalities, and faith informs those values. Base Camp programs are founded on the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) curriculum. You do not need to be a member of the BSA to participate fully in all aspects of Base Camp. Scouting is open to all families.
Scouting is a community parenting program that develops character, citizenship, leadership, and fitness. It achieves this primarily through a curriculum that forms strong youth-adult mentoring relationships, empowers kids with skills that equip them to more effectively navigate the world, and offers them genuine and meaningful leadership opportunities.
Scouting develops character in children and young adults – giving them the strength to do what they individually believe is right when faced with life situations. We understand that individuals and diverse communities utilize the Scouting curriculum may see the world differently, and through varying lenses. We believe mature, articulate, and respectful conflict is part of personal growth and required for citizenship. The common ground is for all our members to do their best to adhere to Scout Law – to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
