Tom wants to see you at summer camp! If your troop is camping a week that your aren’t able, or they haven’t decided where they are camping, you can go to summer camp as an individual. You’ll be paired up with a troop and experience Camp Cedars like everyone else! Learn more here.

Camp Cedars, which comprises the western half of the Covered Wagon Scout Ranch, is located approximately three miles northeast of Cedar Bluffs, Nebraska.
