Beaumont Scout Reservation Partial Closures – October 6th, 2020

Camp May and Cub World will be closed from November 2, 2020 through March 6, 2021. Phillips 66 currently has an easement for three buried  pipelines that run roughly parallel to the main camp road from the entrance past Emerson, Sverdrup Lodge, through Orrick camp site then up toward the challenge course access trail and eventually off of the property. They will be burying a fourth line during the time these sections of camp are closed.

There will be access to the camporee fields and the Nagel Base throughout the project. We apologize for this inconvenience. Phillips 66 has the right of eminent domain. The original project schedule was throughout much of 2021. They very recently suggested this project schedule change, which allows us to operate our summer camps at Beaumont in 2021.

If you have questions please reach out to camping@stlbsa.org.
