Winter Camp

Boy Scout Winter Camp
December 27 - 31, 2018
Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp at Clements Scout Ranch

Winter Camp at Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp in Athens, Texas, is a four-day, four-night jamboree-style camping event.  It is Circle Ten Council's single largest camping event and is staffed by Circle Ten's Mikanakawa Lodge of the Order of the Arrow. Many units consider it the highlight of their yearly camping program. Historically only for Boy Scout troops, this year we will be including Venturing Crews and Sea Scout Ships.  

Units camp jamboree-style with multiple units in a single campsite. The chance to make new friends from outside your immediate Scouting circle is one of the key rewards. Food is prepared by each unit in their campsites.

Each morning, Scouts can work on merit badges or take part in special living history programs in the Mountain Man, Indian Village, and Lumberjack areas.

Afternoons offer a wide-range of activities including competitive games, shooting sports, climbing, activities in the living history areas, horseback riding, wood-turning, and more!

Evenings include special events like a Native American Pow Wow, Cowboy Action Shoot competition, Star Watch parties, or just relaxing in the campsite around the campfire.

We guarantee there is something for everyone in your troop.

We look forward to seeing you at Winter Camp!
