Venturing Camping

Venturing camping

Organized camping is a creative, educational experience in cooperative group living in the outdoors. It uses the natural surrounding to contribute to physical, mental, spiritual, and social growth. 

Crossroads of America Council offers a variety of year-round camping opportunities for Scouts from day camps and week-long resident camp to leadership-based training camp and camp staff. For more information on the council camping operations, please contact the Program Department by email or phone at (317) 813-7125.
