Scofield Scout Camp FAQ's

 

1. What we offer.

     1a. Summer Camps:

  • Summer Camp: Scofield utilizes the Adventure Tack system to deliver high-quality program to the participants at camp. Adventure Tracks are a tactile, experience-based method of learning and achieving merit badges and rank advancement skills. Each Green track will be a two-day experience. Each Scout can choose two different tracks during his week at camp. Scouts will have the opportunity to exercise leadership and teaching skills along the path of track adventures.

7. How many leaders do we need to bring to camp?

  • We recommend 2 leaders for any size group with 1 additional leader for every 6-8 youth.  As leaders, you may need to adjust this to accommodate the needs of your youth. You must still have two deep leadership.


8. What time is check-in?

  • All campers: 9:00am-Noon. We try our best to be done by noon so that we can get to the fun stuff, Adventure Tracks! If you are running late or traveling far, please contact us at least the week prior so we can make arrangements.


9. What about meals?

  • Leave the food hassle to us! The Dining Hall provides 15 meals beginning with lunch on Monday and ending with breakfast on Saturday. Scofield Scout Camp sports a full-service dining hall, allowing your troop to focus on their chosen program and advancement features rather than cooking and preparing food. And for adult leadership, you can leave the worry of purchasing, storing and managing your food to us! Just enjoy the nutritious meals prepared and served by the camp. All utensils, plates and cups are provided. This includes breakfast, lunch and dinner served cafeteria style. Of course, you can also choose to bring your own food, in which case you would be responsible for planning nutritious meals, brining and storing the food for the week and doing whatever cooking and preparation that is required. Ice is available for purchase at the camp. Dining Hall food plan costs $90 per person for the week or $24 for the 11 yr old overnighters.

10. Is water available at camp?

  • Potable water is available throughout the camp. You can see on the campsite map in our Program Guide where each spigot is marked.

11. Do I need to bring anything else to camp?

  • Encourage your youth and leaders to be in uniform.
  • Other helpful items to have at camp are: sunscreen, bug spray, hats for everyone, water bottles, a jacket or coat to keep in your vehicle in case of inclement weather, sunglasses, a day pack to carry your items, and Scout Handbook. 

12. Will the Trading Post be open? If so, what type of things will they have there?

14. What do the campsites look like?

  • If you would like to see some pictures of each campsite, you can go here.

15. Can we bring our own personal boats?

  • At Scofield Scout Camp we have many boats: canoes, kayaks, row boats, sailing boats, and stand up paddle boards. While you are certain to have an awesome time using our boats, feel free to bring your own! We have a huge reservoir and if you wanted to do a unit based activity (following BSA guidelines of course) you are welcome to go out in a fishing boat, motor boat, or other watercraft that are approved for unit based activities. We will not be able to provide support out on the water but you are welcome to dock your boats at our dock. You will need to launch any boats at one of the two State Park locations on the reservoir. Please treat these activities as though it was just like your unit going out and doing it on a regular camp. The camp cannot commit resources to monitor or be responsible for any boating activity outside our own.
