Summer Camps

Note about summer camp lottery: During leader meetings at summer camp, there was an overwhelming number of requests and feedback to streamline the summer camp registration process. Council volunteers and staff are in the process of revamping the registration system. Information about the new system will be available the first week of October.


Every summer thousands of Scouts from all over the region participate in the biggest event of their Scout year, summer camp. During June and July, all four of the Greater St. Louis Area Council’s camp properties come alive with Scouting fun, adventure and advancement opportunities.

Summer camp is where area Scouts gather once a year to make lifelong friends and memories while experiencing the great outdoors and developing valuable lasting skills.
