ABOUT OUR PROGRAM Accordian Control
Camp Phillips Staff

The staff at Camp Phillips is highly trained, experienced and encouraging. Scouts will leave Camp Phillips with experiences they will never forget.


Lake activities include canoeing, stand up paddle boarding, swimming, sailing and kayaking. There is plenty to do at Camp Phillips' rich aquatics areas. All campsites have lake access and row boats available.

Shooting Sports

Camp Phillips has the best shooting facilities for Scouts BSA in the United States! Our NRA certified staff will lead Scouts through introductory lessons in archery, rifle and shotgun shooting. As a Scout gets older and more experienced, he can begin advancing his skill level. Some advanced offerings available to older Scouts include trap shooting, pistol shooting and 100 yard rifle shooting.

Nature Center

Our nature building is newly remodeled and has opportunities for Scouts to learn about nature in a hands-on experience.


Communication, Citizenship in the Nation, Citizenship in the World and other Eagle Scout required merit badges are offered at Camp Phillips. Our civics staff strives to provide engaging and fun learning experiences in civics, while completing requirements.

Outdoor Skills

Scoutcraft is a program area consisting of outdoor skills merit badges and other related merit badges. Scouts have the opportunity to learn and apply basic outdoor skills such as cooking, camping, fishing, orienteering, first aid, blacksmithing and branding.

First Year Camper

This area is geared towards Scouts that have just joined the adventure of Scouting. Scouts earn many requirements for the first 3 ranks of Scouting, while applying their new knowledge in camping, knife safety, cooking and knot tying.

Project COPE

Project COPE stands for Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience. A high & low ropes course is the perfect place for team building, ziplining and pushing Scouts outside of their shells. Our challenge courses are independently inspected annually. Our COPE staff completes extensive training in facilitation and equipment inspection.


Our Climbing Wall is over 35 feet in height! Scouts will be challenged and encouraged as they climb and learn a new skill. Our climbing wall is inspected annually and climbing and belaying are supervised by trained staff at all times.
