2023 Melita Island

Event Details

Camp Melita Island 2023
In the middle of the pristine waters of Flathead Lake lies an island gem called Melita.

Melita Island is wholly owned by the Boy Scouts of America, Montana Council, and is a little piece of paradise reserved just for Scouts to have the adventure of a lifetime. Programs at Melita Island are heavily water-based and are ideal for seasoned Scouts that are looking for something a little different than the traditional summer camp. We also have land-based activities for those who are afraid to get wet. 
 

Update 8/12/2023:  Melita Island Registration is currently full for 2023.

- Units with existing registrations can adjust attendance as needed.  

- Units looking to book for 2023 can still register and be put on a waitlist or can check out our other camp, K-M Scout Ranch for another great scout camp opportunity: https://scoutingevent.com/315-2023KMScoutRanch

*New in 2023*: Because of limited spots on Melita Island, priority will be given to youth attendees.
Every unit will be permitted 1 adult per every 4 youth registered. 
There will be a total of 160 spots available per week.

Each day is a new adventure drawing on past learned skills and creating memories for the future.

Adult Programs
Camp can also be fun, relaxing and a learning and rewarding experience for adults. At Melita Island we take this to a new dimension. Some learning experiences we've offered in prior years include: Intro to Outdoor Leader Skills, Safe Swim Defense, Safety Afloat, and Hazardous Weather. We have also provided several stress reducing events that you can participate in, which have included: Evening Socials, Boat Rides and Pie Making Classes.
