S bar F Scout Ranch

Hey, Scouts! Ready for the best summer camp ever?

Whether you are coming to Scout camp for the first time or you are a veteran, you'll find more things than you can do in a week at The Ranch.  

S bar F SCOUT RANCH is 5,200 acres of woods, streams, trails and fun. 

On the 270-acre Nims Lake are three Scout camps: Sakima, Famous Eagle and Theodore Gamble.  Each has 14 different campsites where troops camp.  On your troop campsite, your patrol will camp separately and prepare its own meals.

There's plenty to do at Scout camp. You'll be able to swim twice a day, canoe, row, kayak, shoot a rifle, shoot archery, go to Hucks Cove, take an overnight canoe float and earn a few of the 24 different merit badges offered, as well as participate in the Order of the Arrow Call-out and Games Night. There are campfire programs for the entire camp on Sunday and Friday nights.  If you feel bold, try the Mile Swim on Friday afternoon.

If you are at least 14 years old (or this is your fourth summer of Scout Camp), you can participate in the older Scout programs such as mountain biking, rappelling, rock climbing and horseback riding, canoe orienteering, and a night shoot. We will also offer kayak polo, ultimate frisbee, water tubing and shotgun shooting.  If you have the Lifesaving merit badge, you can earn the BSA Lifeguard certification.

Consider the Ranger Program for older Scouts. It's a high-adventure program not for the weak at heart!
