Eagle River Scout Camp - Scouts BSA Camp
The walk into camp is worth the trip. Troops arrive Sunday afternoon and take the 1.3 mile walk with their personal gear into camp. Scouts and Leaders stay in one of the camps cabins spread through out camp and enjoy eating all of their meals in the dining hall that overlooks the Favorite Channel. Camp activities are schedule around the tide so merit badge and activity times are schedule to maximize the both high and low tide. the camp is in a rain forest so being prepared with proper boots and rain gear to have the most positive experience while enjoying seeing the eagles, whales, sea lions and other animals that call this area home. Friday night campfires are always a big hit! The camp is far enough South in Alaska that there is dusk and night. It is not uncommon to see a cruise ship lit up at night making its way up the channel after campfire. Camps wraps up Saturday morning. The camp is very grateful to the local volunteers and organizations who come in and help make camp successful. Getting There is Half the Fun For those traveling to camp from outside Juneau, the camp will make arrangements to pick you up from the airport or ferry and bring you to and from camp. The Council Office can also help with travel from Anchorage or the lower 48 to camp.
