Off Season Camping

Off Season Camping will be available starting January, 2021. Units will need to adhere to all health and safety guidelines mandated by state and county officials. This includes face coverings and distancing when required.

The Heart of America Council offers two premiere camping reservations. H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation is located near Osceola, Missouri and Theodore Naish Scout Reservation is located in Bonner Springs, Kansas. These facilities provide the platform for long term resident camping during June through August. When the facilities are not being used for long term camping they are available for "Off-Season" use by units.

Both Camps are available for hiking, camping, and a variety of other activities. Several resources are available to help you in making reservations for your units.
