Each Summer, the INWC hosts week-long summer camps for scouts and leaders to come and advance in scouting, learn new skills, escape from everyday life and enjoy the great outdoors. 

Several times each year, Scouts from all over the Inland Northwest will gather for a Weekend "Camporee" or  "Klondike" to learn and test skills and experience outdoor adventure!

Scouting is a journey that knows no bounds, for youth looking for bigger, better, louder adventures beyond local opportunities, there are options for high adventure all across the country.

Why camping & outdoors?

Outdoor adventure is one of the main methods used in the scouting program. Our Mission is to instill the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law into youth by using fun adventures and activities that make the youth want to learn. 

Scouts BSA Camps offer these opportunities for our scouts aged 11-18. Focusing on hands on, skill-based instruction and high adventure, these activities get scouts ready for the adulthood by teaching team skills, cooperation, grit and perseverance using activities like shooting sports, wilderness survival, trades crafts and more.

Summer camp is what many Scouts BSA members enjoy most. Camp programs provide numerous opportunities for youth to earn merit badges along their advancement trail. Summer camp includes five nights and six days of fun outdoor activities like swimming, boating, shooting sports, survival skills, blacksmithing, zip-lining and more.
