Camp Tifie FAQs

 

What we offer.

     Summer Camps:

  • Summer Camp: Tifie which is part of Mountain Dell Scout Ranch is located above Mount Pleasant, Utah in Sanpete County.  Tifie is an acronym which stands for Teaching Individuals and Families Independence Through Enterprise.  Tifie is situated at 7500 feet above the beautiful Sanpete Valley. Temperatures can be 15 to 20 degree cooler than in the valley during the summer. Tifie is a full-service camp that provides merit badge and adventure tracks for Scouts as well as offering a myriad of activities (e.g., shooting, aquatics, COPE, climbing and rappelling, and mountain biking) for stake groups including Zion’s camps, Aaronic Priesthood Encampments, and Girls Camps.

  • Scout Camp Adventure Tracks Unveiled! Check out this blog article which gives more information about the Adventure Track system!

    • Adventure Tracks are a tactile, experience-based method of learning and achieving merit badges and rank advancement skills. Each track will be a two-day experience, with each Scout participating in two different tracks during a week at camp. The exception to the two-day track course will be some high-adventure based tracks, which may contain overnighters and may be as long as 5 days. Want to know more about the adventure track system?

Preparing for camp.

     Required forms for ALL those attending camp:

  • Health form for everyone attending camp (including leaders)
  • Unit Roster: This list should include everyone who will be at camp for the week. We have found that the swim check roster works great for this. You can find that form at the end of our Program Guide which can be found here.
  • Registration receipt - in case there's an issue with registration
  • Swim Check: The swim classification of individuals participating in a Boy Scouts of America activity is a key element in both Safe Swim Defense and Safety Afloat. Refer to the swim test check-list in the Tifie Program Guide for categories and requirements. Leaders should ensure that swim tests for their youth are completed prior to coming up to camp.

What are the camp's policies and procedures?


Directions to camp

  • Drive to Mount Pleasant, Utah. Near the southern end of town before Main Street/Hwy 89 curves to the south-west, turn east on 700 S, drive to 700 E and turn south. The next turn will be east again on 1000 S, then south again after on 1200 E (or Pine Creek Road). Pine Creek Road will curve left after about one mile. After another 1/5 of a mile, the road will curve to the right. Follow the curve about another mile where it will once again curve right. Continue to follow this curve and the road will wind its way up to the main parking lot. From the last right curve to the main parking lot is about two miles. Signs along the way will provide direction.
