Camp C.W. Post

Camp Post logo
The C.W. Post Memorial Scout Camp is the closest of our summer camp options and a popular camping and training destination throughout the entire year. Camp is nestled between rugged ravines and scenic hiking trails at the edge of the West Texas Caprock system. It features a wide variety of facilities with a unifying and scenic Western adventure theme.  It has a newly renovated dining hall, a swimming pool, modern showers and training facilities. In the summer the Post boasts specialty programs for our Scouts like horsemanship, canoeing, and kayaking among others. Year round our high and low ropes course is available for Scouts and community members alike to hone leadership and teamwork skills.

This well-equipped camp also offers aquatic excitement through  canoeing, kayaking, and swimming.

Camp Post is also home of Commissioner's Corner, a highly praised First Class Emphasis program.  This feature makes it a great place to bring your beginning Scout for a good start in the outdoors. Scouts of all ages can enjoy an ice cream or snack at our western-themed Mercantile Building or visit our Blacksmith Shop for a look at old-time livestock care. 

The rugged scenery of the Caprock provides a beautiful backdrop for higher-adventure exploration and hiking.  The facilities of Camp Post are suitable for use by units at all levels, and the large, rugged site provides plenty of challenge for more advanced units.

Evening campfires at our newly constructed amphitheater-style Council Ring always provide a memorable highlight of summer camp.
