Camp Belzer

Located on the northeast side of Indianapolis, Belzer is easily accessible from I-465 and is adjacent to Fort Benjamin Harrison State Park. During the summer, this camp serves as the flagship Cub Scout Day Camp, and has three swimming pools and eight program shelters. There are five year-round cabin facilities with bunks, which can accommodate up to 24 people each. This camp is ideal for large group events and primitive camping with plenty of parking and restrooms available. The camp is fully wheelchair accessible, with newly added paved trails. Program ideas include orienteering, canoeing on Fall Creek, camping or a leadership training conference.  

Belzer Scout Reservation, which opened in 1918 as Camp Chank-tun-un-gi, has a rich history. It was re-named for the first Indianapolis Scout Executive, Francis O. Belzer, who started serving in 1946.
