The Utah National Parks Council is making its camps available for units and other groups to schedule and utilize through-out the year. Benefits of using council camps are many, and may differ from camp to camp, but include:
- A level of privacy and security - these are not public campgrounds
- Infrastructure, including established campsites, water, bathrooms, showers, etc.
- Onsite trading post for those forgotten items
- Activities to optionally sign up for, including shooting sports, waterfront, COPE and ZIP lines, merit badge classes, etc.
Usages can include anything from family camping, monthly troop's campout, family reunions, to a church Father and Son campout. The possibilities are endless! Follow the links below for more information and to schedule your group's campouts:

- Merit Badge Adventures: We've heard you loud and clear – provide more merit badge opportunities year round! Merit Badge Adventures is just that, a Friday through Saturday adventure at one of our Scout camps that focus on helping youth work on one or more merit badges! Troops can now combine their monthly campout with merit badge work – no extra work for the adult leaders, and great opportunities for the youth. And because of the resources available at the council-level, some very unique experiences and merit badges can be offered!
