FSR Summer Camp at J.F. Billlet

J. Fred Billett Camp has ten wooded campsites on the North side of Burnt Hope Lake at Forestburg Scout Reservation. In this setting, Scouts and Scouters with a tight camp schedule can enjoy camping without having to prepare their own meals. Campers will enjoy their meals in the Housman Lodge Dining Hall. Here Scouts will have the opportunity to meet Scouts from other areas and get a true sense of fellowship. 

Scouts and Scouters will camp in typical Boy Scout canvas tents, which are set atop wooden platforms. These tents are provided and already set up. In each tent, there are two steel spring cots for your comfort. It is recommended that each camper bring some type of sleeping pad to place between the cot and his sleeping bag. Cot springs may puncture air mattresses. For this reason, they are not recommended. 

Some equipment is available on request. This equipment includes shovels, axes, bow saws and Dutch ovens. Since meals will be served in the dining hall, there is no need to check out cooking equipment. The unit should supply any other equipment. We encourage each unit to bring their unit’s flag. All Forestburg summer camp program features are available to J. Fred Billett campers.
