Event Details

Join us in 2023 at Camp Independence!

Step into the Past: Mission to Mesozoic

Explore the lost world of dinosaurs and help our intrepid adventurers find their way home!  

Multiple camp sessions are offered throughout the summer. We're sure to have an opportunity that fits your family's schedule perfectly.

Our fully furnished campsites offer wall tents on platforms, covered picnic tables, latrines with wash basins, and campfire circles for your use. Want to bring your own camping equipment with you? Go for it!

Camp Independence Session Options:

Rookie Camp - A one-night experience, perfect for Tigers and brand-new Scouts with little to no camping experience, Rookie Camp provides a taste of the Camp Independence experience.

  • 2023 Rookie Camp - June 17-18 (Sat.-Sun.)

Pack Camp - Perfect for families with multiple Scouts, Pack Camp provides a program for all age groups in the pack at the same time. Age groups will be divided up to receive age-specific programs and activities during the day while getting to participate in campwide programing, campfires, and meals as a whole group. All sessions include an option for Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts to stay and extra day for extra Webelos focused programs such as a hike to one of Heritage Reservation's two Scouts BSA resident camps - Camp Liberty or Camp Freedom.
