Boy Scout Camping Links
The backbone of a Boy Scout's camping experience, Summer Camp provides a week-long opportunity to sharpen their camping and wilderness skills while enjoying the beauty of the outdoors at Blass Scout Reservation. Scouts and their patrols get to show off those skills and others at the District Camporee, a weekend of contests, camping and conviviality held locally within the scout's home district. And finally, every 18 months the big event, the Council Camporee, a theme-driven extravaganza of programs, demonstrations, special events and unique entertainment.
Summer Boy Scout Camp - Quapaw Area Council's Boy Scout camping takes place at Blass Scout Reservation, a secluded 2800+ acre scout camp located near Damascus Arkansas, providing opportunities for younger scouts to earn their rank advancement while older scouts work towards their merit badges of interest. The young men learn to work with each other and with the camp staff, learning important lessons of leadership, discipline and teamwork
Upcoming Boy Scout Camping Events
District Camporee - Boy Scouts from units across their district compete in these Council-sponsored weekends of fun and fellowship. Inter-patrol and inter-personal competitions determine the most creative, most knowledgeable and hardest-working Boy Scouts present, while presentations and demonstrations introduce the boys into ever-wider fields of interest for them to learn and master.
Council Camporee - Is generally held at Blass Scout Reservation every 18 months, the Council Camporee is a show of shows based on a special theme, such as Scouting Through The Years, the theme of the 2001 Council Camporee. Each Unit has its own part to play in the production, and gives the boys a chance to learn and experience a wide range of presentations and exhibitions. Every young man stretches himself to new levels of skill and dedication in order to provide a scouting experience that is not to be missed.
