Bear Paw Summer Camp Trips

For all trips: Reservations are dependent on a number of factors: Weather, staff availability, participant qualification and other safety issues. We will do everything we can to make sure we can keep your trip reservation, however we do reserve the right to reschedule or cancel trips at camp for safety reasons. Whenever possible, we will reschedule a trip rather than cancel it. All trips going off camp property require transportation provided by participants and may require Unit adult leaders to attend to ensure youth protection requirements are met.

Trips may be scheduled Monday through Thursday. Units/Participants wishing to schedule on Friday (unless otherwise noted/approved in the chart below) or for a group wanting to attend that is lager than capacities listed below, please contact Nick Manning.

Review the trip chart below and if interested in making reservations, below the chart, select the week your Unit will be attending Summer Camp at Bear Paw.


Note: For all Scout participants you will need to know their age at the time they attend the camp/trip(s) to complete the reservation, as well as the primary contact information for the Unit Leader attending camp/trip(s).
