A new program and timeline will be used for 2022-2023 unit camping reservations. To reserve the treehouses and adirondacks at S-F Scout Ranch and adirondacks at Beaumont Scout Reservation, units will need to have one leader apply for a unique code that will allow them to complete the reservation and not reserve the facility more than once. With the new “code” process, leaders can login to the system at their convenience and complete their reservation on a first-come first-served basis once the reservation system opens. Units will be limited to one treehouse or adirondack reservation until all remaining facilities and camping areas open for reservations. The timeline for this process is:

This is on a first-come first-served basis via the reservation portal – https://campreservation.com/312/Home.

Camp Grizzly Cub World

Camp Grizzly Cub World is a favorite for Scouts and parents alike. Designed specifically for Cub Scouts and families, the area contains:

  • Akela’s Council Ring: This ceremonial site is a great facility
    for pack and den awards ceremonies, or for having a
    fun‑filled Scout‑type campfire.
  • Cub World Activity Building: A large meeting room is
    available for pack meetings.
  • Cub World Pavilion and shelters
  • Cub Scout Family Camp: There are campsites available
    for dens and packs to enjoy tent camping. Each campsite
    has a picnic table, fire ring with cooking grate, and trash
    can. A shower facility with indoor toilets is also available
    year round.

Activity Areas:

  • Eagle’s Nest Tower: Located on one of the highest points
    of Beaumont Reservation is the Eagle’s Nest Tower. A
    three‑level tower more than 20‑feet high offers a spectacular
    view of the surrounding countryside.
  • Fort Hussmann: This area provides Scouts the chance to
    dream about life in a frontier fort. The area contains a fort,
    fire ring, and picnic tables.
  • Lost Beaumont Mine: Sand and tunnels abound in this
    unique area. A miner’s cabin with a potbelly stove is a major
    feature, along with an ore wagon and panning for gold in
    Antire Creek.
  • Sea Wolf Pirate Ship: Relive the days of Blackbeard the
    Pirate. The ship contains cannons, a deck, and a lower level.
  • Sports Field: A sports field exists for softball or other

    and playground equipment.
