Approved Campsites

Pack Overnighters

These are pack-organized overnight events involving more than one family from a single pack, focused on age-appropriate Cub Scout activities and conducted at council-approved locations (see list below). If nonmembers (siblings) participate, the event must be structured accordingly to accommodate them. BSA health and safety and Youth Protection guidelines apply. In most cases, each youth participant is responsible to a specific adult.

Adults giving leadership to a pack overnighter must complete Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO, No. 34162A) to properly understand the importance of program intent, youth protection guidelines, health and safety, site selection,   age-appropriate activities, and sufficient adult participation. Permits for camp outs will be issued through the East Texas Area Council's Service Center in Tyler. Contact Martha Dudley at (903) 597-7201 for more information.

UPDATE (1/26/16):  This is not intended to be a comprehensive list.  Many more sites are approved than simply those that are listed here.  Please contact your District Executive or the Council Scout Service Center with your requests.  Please submit a Pack Overnighter Site Approval Form (13-508) should you have a site you are considering.
