Summer Camp 2019


Dear Scout Leader:

 Welcome to Spanish Trail Scout Reservation 2019!  We are eager to have you and your Scouts in camp this summer to celebrate 58 years of Spanish Trail Scout Reservation. We have several new merit badges and updates to our program this year as part of our quest to best serve you and your scouts. This summer we will have many of our returning programs, such as Horsemanship, Deep Sea Fishing, Radio, ATV, and MORE!

Although there are many ways to measure the success of a session in camp, the real goals are those of the Scouting Movement itself; character building, citizenship training, and personal fitness. The requirements passed or number of badges earned is not an end in itself; we hope your Scouts have fun, develop confidence and self-reliance, gain knowledge from the various program areas available, and appreciate the great outdoors!

For 2019 we will once again be using a web based registration system. This system allows units to select Merit Badges for their scouts and makes the class selection process simple for leaders. The system will open up on March 1st, 2019 and close on June 1st, 2019 Merit Badge class sizes will be limited, so be sure to log-in early to make selections. We will be accepting all scouts.

We have also eliminated all extra fees for merit badge classes. As you complete your preparations for camp, let us know if we can be of further service and assistance. Please contact the Scout Service Center by phone at (850) 476-6336 or by email Please encourage all your scouts to attend; you never know what kind of effect the outdoor camping experience can have on a young man or woman.


Summer Camp is one of the highlights of a scout’s journey. Spanish Trail Scout Reservation offers a variety of merit badges, but also a fun themed program as well. 2019's theme is Pirates!

Troops are encouraged to bring pirate costumes and games. There will be a costume contest and chances to challenge the staff. Monday evening will be a pirate scavenger hunt. Tuesday will be the Staff “Pirate” hunt. Wednesday night is OA night, so bring your sash to wear to dinner! Thursday evening show your skills at the Pirate Games and skit competition. Friday is family day, so your families are welcome to enjoy dinner with us at the dining hall and head down to Whipple circle to watch the week’s closing campfire program.
