Camp Reservations and Rentals

The Mid-America Council is excited to offer an online system for viewing availability and reserving space at our Council camp locations. The Camp Reservation system provides a great way to view any and all of our properties and facilities and see when they are available. Scout leaders and District and Council event volunteers may also reserve space online, from the comfort of their own home, for their event. This system will allow us to eliminate double-booking issues and be the best stewards of our camps, that we can be.

Please note this program does not allow you to register for any upcoming events that may be held at these camps. This program is strictly for reserving space at camp, for your family, unit or event.

Reserve space for your next Scout event and put the “outing”

Campmaster Corps

Are you an adult who is passionate about being a role model for others? Mentoring adult leaders? Teaching Scouts? Camping? The Campmaster Corps is the thing for you!

The Mid-America Council Campmaster Corps is made up of dedicated Scouting volunteers that help promote weekend camping at our camps.  Each Campmaster Crew is made up of several adult Scouters that stay at our camps on weekends to 1) host groups that are camping from check-in to check-out, 2) provide a FREE simple program feature for campers to enjoy and learn from, and 3) help with service project or maintenance opportunities.

Campmaster Crews are a great way for adult Scouters to enjoy our camps and use their experience to teach other Scouts and Scout leaders.  At most camps, Crews are provided with housing and transportation.  Adults interested in becoming a Campmaster should contact the Council Campmaster Corps Chair, Shawn Stiefel, at scstiefel@gmail.com or 402-650-9217.
