Base Camp is tucked in the space between an adventure park, a hands-on learning experience and a community resource. With over 20,000 annual guests you’re likely to run into some of your friends while enjoy all the adventurous activities in the great outdoors.
During the market research that helped to develop Base Camp we found many parents understood and agreed that Scouting would create a strong and positive impact on their child’s character and leadership. Also, the unique skills Scouting teaches from camping and wilderness survival to rock climbing and archery are also attractive to most families. Now, through the Base Camp programs everyone is invited and families can learn and enjoy together.
Join us for our Saturday program! Come and give archery a try and then head over to the Axe Yard to learn to chop/split and plain a log. Be sure to save some time to go rock climbing, throw a tomahawk, test your skills at outdoor cooking and dig up a dinosaur. Come play outside on Saturdays at Basecamp!
