Every Scout Wants To Go To Camp!
Summer camp should be one of the highlights of a unit’s activities. Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers have the opportunity to gather life-long memories and learn valuable life skills while enjoying camping and the great outdoors.
The Greater St. Louis Area Council conducts a variety of programs for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers. Summer camp programs are held at Camp Lewallen, Pine Ridge Scout Camp, Camp May and Nagel Base at Beaumont Scout Reservation, and Swift Base, Camp Sakima and Camp Famous Eagle at S bar F Scout Ranch.

Visitors Night at Boy Scout Camp
Homesickness can also result in otherwise happy Scouts when family members linger. And the additional ceremony for those Scouts who were called-out cannot begin until after cars are off the roads and camp has quieted down.
Arrive after 5 p.m. and bring a lawn chair and flashlight. Feel free to bring a picnic supper; Scouts have a picnic-style dinner on their campsite at 6:30 p.m. The Trading Post is open for purchasing snacks or camp merchandise. Do not bring any pets. Campsites and the lakefront are not accessible to vehicles, and handicapped accessibility is very limited. Be prepared to do some walking. PROVISIONAL CAMP
Any Scout in the Greater St. Louis Area Council who is unable to attend summer camp with his home troop due to schedule conflicts, school, illness, etc., or for those wishing to attend additional camps may sign up with a provisional troop for July 20-26. This temporary unit allows Scouts to attend a full week of camp at S bar F Scout Ranch.
