Council service units are eligible to apply for encampments at our local camps: Camp Tongawood and Camp Prairie Schooner. Service unit (SU) camping will be limited to only a couple weekends each Spring and Fall, this ensures that there are still plenty of weekends for troop camping to occur on property.
- If you wish to reserve a commercial kitchen, on-site training and food handler certifications are required.
- Service units can place reservations up to 4 months in advance using the Outdoor Reservation: Service Unit Camping Form. Any requests submitted more than 4 months prior to the requested date will be returned.
- Service unit campout events will include council-staff lead adventure activities.
For any large SU event, once confirmed, a meeting with SU event organizers, council outdoor program team, property manager and membership manager will be set. This allows for everyone to come together to discuss the event and any needs from the SU and/or council staff to ensure the event is a successful experience for the girls.
