Camping at its Best

Camping is the heart of the Scouting program and through experiences in the outdoors, Scouts build character, learn important new skills, practice leadership, and build the character values of the Scout Oath and Law. The Dan Beard Council operates four camps -- Camp Friedlander, Camp Craig, Cub World, and Camp Michaels -- that each offer something unique for you, your unit, or your organization...



How to Reserve Camp

application_for_camp_usageAll usage of our camps are reserved through the Scout Achievement Center, including equipment rental, tours, and hiking. Because of high demand of our facilities and our need to know who and when the properties are being used, we require all reservations to be made with the Application for Camp Usage at least 72 hours in advance and accompanied by applicable payment.

Our camps have high usage nearly every weekend, so we encourage you to make your reservation as far in advance as possible to confirm the facilities you want.

Here are the steps to make your camp facility reservation...
