Maple Dell Scout Camp FAQ's

 

1. What we offer.

     1a. Summer Camps:

  • Summer Camp: Maple Dell is the council’s Flag Ship camp, established in 1946. We are a traditional Scout Camp with program for Scouts ages 11-18. 
    • For the young first year Scouts we have the Trail to First Class program that assists them with learning many of the skills needed to pass of the majority of the requirements for the Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class ranks. 
    • For 12-13 year old Scouts we have a robust merit badge program and some elements of high adventure.
    • OLDER SCOUTS can sign up for the Frontiersman Program which is focused on preparing older boys for being out on their own and for LDS missions, teaching skills like cooking, sewing, and self-reliance while the whole program is wrapped in a fun frontier mountainman theme.  The S.Tr.I.D.E.R. (S.couts Tr.ained i.n D.isaster E.mergency R.esponse) program is an advanced wilderness survival course where participants learn about advanced shelter building, wilderness first aid skills, victim extraction, and hydrology location and purification.
