At Forestburg Scout Reservation we continually strive to improve our summer camp program, which supports the unit’s year-round scouting activities. Our programs are designed to contribute to not only the individual scout’s growth, but also to help in building a troop’s enthusiasm and strengthening a patrol’s teamwork. Our extensive Merit Badge offerings, activities, and opportunities exist to foster friendship, fellowship, confidence, and, simply, put fun in the great outdoors.
Working with each unit’s leadership, we strive to instill the values found in the Scout Oath and Law. While at camp, all participants are expected to live up to these same standards. This teamwork approach reinforceseach unit’s journey to excellence.

Provisional Camp is an opportunity for the Scout to spend a week at camp without having to go with their troop. Provisional camping is also a great opportunity for Scouts to catch up on merit badges, complete merit badges already started, or to enjoy the outdoor adventures offered at Forestburg Scout Reservation. Also, if the Scout is unable to attend summer camp with their troop, it is a great way for them to still enjoy their summer camp experience.
