Camp 2020 Resources for Crossroads of America

Camp 2020

Summer Camp is one of the most exciting opportunities our members look forward to each year.

After reviewing our operations, we have determined for the health and safety of our Scouts, leaders, staff and the extended community we will not hold camp in person for the summer of 2020. We know camping is an iconic experience, but the health and safety of our Scouting family is our top priority.

We are appreciative of the planning and preparation our Units invested to be ready for camp, and we are eager to partner with you to plan for future summers. To learn more, including a unique way our Scouts can participate in program activities at home, please view the video message from our Scout Executive Joe Wiltrout.

To continue program and advancement opportunities, we are excited to announce the launch of our Cub Scout Adventure Boxes and our virtual Scouts BSA 2020 Summer Experience. For Cub Scouts, each rank-specific box is filled with nearly everything their family needs to complete five elective Cub Scout Adventures at home and kick start their Cub Scouts advancement to the next rank this summer. For our Scouts BSA 2020 Summer Experience, each week Scouts will virtually participate in unique experiences, facilitated skill-building session, merit badges and more, all lead by dedicated Ransburg staff.

We will begin processing refunds for affected participants by May 15. You do not need to do anything to initiate a refund. Refunds are returned to the original payer and in the original form of payment.

To ensure our programs are accessible to all Scouts, we are reviewing scholarship opportunities and working to provide a list of community partners where resources such as internet and device access is available. We are also still evaluating which platform(s) will be used for virtual camp because we know that safety, security and ease of use is critical to ensure a successful and safe experience.

For more than 110 years, the Crossroads of America Council has been supported by dedicated volunteers and members with a passion for youth development and transforming lives. We are deeply grateful for your commitment to the Crossroads of America Council and our Scouts. We will keep in touch through email and social media to share the impact of Scouting in our community.

Still have questions? Contact one of our Program Directors or Assistants.

After listening to input from dozens of focus groups and hundreds of families, the Crossroads of America Council has created a master plan for each of our properties. In the summer of 2019, we began several new projects at our facilities that you asked for, including new campsites, tents, and bathrooms at Kikthawenund, a personal watercraft program at Ransburg, and bounce houses at Belzer. The big change, however, is the redeployment of our properties to better serve our families at every level starting in 2020.

Belzer
Camp Belzer will primarily serve as the day camp for our Lions and Tigers in the Indy metro area. Its program is specifically designed for the boundless energy of our youngest Scouts!

District Day Camps

Located in seven communities across Central Indiana, District Day Camps will continue to operate for all Cub Scouts.

District Day Camps cost $95/Scout and run Monday – Friday, 8:30 – 4:00, though some have overnight options on Friday.

Activities include Archery, BB Guns, STEM, crafts, field games, bounce houses, and more. Like Camp Belzer, District Day Camps are designed with younger Cub Scouts in mind. Older Cub Scouts are encouraged, but not required, to attend Camp Kikthawenund or Krietenstein.
