Outdoor Family Experience Summer 2020

June 01, 2020

The Outdoor Family Experience is a safe and socially distant way to camp this summer.  Whether you choose an overnight campsite ($25 per family, per night), a Day Pass ($10 per family, per day), or a cabin (price varies by cabin), your family will have access to hiking, fishing, and other natural features of camp. Additional staffed programs like boating and horseback rides will be available for additional fees at certain camps. You can see all the available activities and options in the registration.

What is included with every overnight or day visit:

  • Hiking
  • Creek walks (where applicable)
  • Latrine and shower facilities
  • Fishing (be sure to bring your own poles!)
  • Any other outdoor activities you bring (think: bikes, lawn games, non-motor boats, etc.)

06/01/2020 UPDATE: As an additional activity at the Beaumont Scout Reservation outdoor family experience, the climbing wall will be available for reservation every Saturday in June and July. The cost is $20 a family, for an hour.

For your safety, certain high-touch and tough to clean activities will be closed such as Hucks Cove waterpark, Cub World playground/pirate ship, mud cave, gagaball pits, bouldering walls, most buildings throughout camp.

If you are new to our camps, welcome!  There are certain items that you cannot bring onto a Boy Scouts Camp property: alcohol, non prescription drugs, fireworks, firearms, and pets. Also, please note that no camp stay can be longer than 72 hours, so please do not book four consecutive nights, or more.

Family members* of campers and day visitors should come prepared to enjoy the outdoors responsibly by following state and local government restrictions and guidelines set forth by the CDC.
