Why choose Camp Sequoyah?

Through achievement and advancement, acquiring and testing new skills in the encouraging and supportive environment of Scouting, we help young people develop and mature into young adults of character and integrity. Through the program we offer, units are strengthened, and Scouts return to their families and communities to make a positive impact in their world. While this may seem a lot to claim for a week-long camping trip, the 100-year history of Scouting has shown us, time and time again, that a summer camping experience can create a lasting and positive effect on a Scout. Plus, as just about any Scout will tell you, it’s a lot of fun!

What about some of the facilities at Camp Sequoyah?

Camp Sequoyah is a classic Scout camp designed to support the delivery of a quality program. A full-time Ranger works year around to maintain the facilities and ensure conservation of the land for years to come. Each year, we work to improve program, property, and facilities. Camp Sequoyah currently has 14 campsites. Each campsite is equipped with a latrine with two flush toilets, faucet and washbasin along with two hot-water showers. The campsites have designated leader and patrol areas of four tents each. Tents sleep two each people. There is no electricity in the campsites.

The Dining Hall at Sequoyah is centrally located and features family-style dining. Our waterfront is located on the shore of the beautiful Lake Cross. The 86-acre lake is equipped with a three-tier swimming area as well as a boating dock that serves canoeing, kayaking, rowing, sailing, and paddle boarding. The shooting range accommodates all three shooting sports in one location. Our 50-foot climbing/rappelling tower has 20’, 30’, 40’, and 50’ wall climbs; a 40’ rappel, and 14’, 24’, and 34’ chimney climbs. The trading post is stocked with refreshing treats as well as merit badge books, program supplies, and souvenirs. Other camp facilities include an Ecology Lodge, Craft Hut, Medic Lodge, Camp Office, Leader’s Hut, Chapel, and Council Ring.

Is provisional camping allowed?

NO TROOP? NO PROBLEM! There is no reason for you to miss out on all the fun just because your troop isn’t going to summer camp, or because other summer plans mean you won’t be able to go to camp with your troop. You may even want to do an additional week of camp, just because you had such a great time. Scouts who wish to go to camp can attend as Provisional Camper and contact camp personnel to plan.
