Northeast Illinois Council Camps & Summer Camp Programs
For nearly 85 years, the Northeast Illinois Council has been providing summer camp opportunities for the youth in our Scouting programs. As Baden-Powell said, “A week of camp life is worth six months of theoretical teaching in the meeting room.” We say that two weeks is even better. Whether your Tiger is spending three days at Twilight Camp, or your Venturer is spending ten days at Boundary Waters, the experience will prove to be unforgettable and the education will last a lifetime.
All of our campgrounds have been approved to be part of the National Camp Accreditation Program.
