Theodore Naish Scout Reservation

Please click here to find out about construction on 118th St.  118th St. will be closed for construction this summer.  If you are coming to camp from the north and plan on using 118th St to enter camp, please make alternate plans.  Construction is expected to be complete in November 2014.

Camp Naish consists of 850 acres owned by the Heart Of America Council, Boy Scouts of America, and an additional 350 acres held by the council on long-term lease from Lone Star Industries quarry and cement company, all located in Bonner Springs, KS. This land consists of several rolling hills, rising up to 400 feet above the Kaw River valley nearby. Three hills on Camp Naish rise more than 1,000 feet above sea level and are the highest in Wyandotte County. The hills at Naish are mostly covered in a dense sub-climax oak/hickory forest, with an elm and dogwood understory. The camp also contains several meadows of varying size, mostly in areas that were at one time plowed fields.
