Summer Camp 2019
The council does not plan to conduct summer resident camp in 2019 at one of our camp properties and instead assist our troops to find a suitable summer resident camp at another council’s camp to meet their needs. There are many other local council camps in the Texas region. We have partnered with the Capitol Area Council headquartered in Austin, Texas for troops to consider their summer camp program at Lost Pines Scout Reservation, located in Bastrop, Texas.
Also, we will continue to provide campership assistance for our Scouts in need to participate in a summer resident camp program if they attend the Lost Pines Summer Camp in 2019. Registration opens in September.
