    Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Davis Mountains in West Texas, this 9,320-acre ranch is one of America’s premier High-Adventure council camps. The camp is nationally recognized and fully accredited by the Boy Scouts of America. In operation since 1947, this beautiful ranch has met the needs of Scouts, Scouters, and their families for over 50 years.

    Millions of years ago, volcanic activity sent the Davis Mountains 6500+ feet above sea level. Erosion of the calderas left the rocky peaks 2000 feet above the valley floors. The igneous rocks formed some of the most beautiful canyons, highest peaks, and tallest cliffs in Texas. Tall century plants, Spanish dagger, pinion pine, juniper, big tooth maple, yucca plants, cacti, and all kinds of wildlife fill the valleys and peaks of this beautiful ranch.

    The climbing merit badge program at BTSR is second to none. The canyon walls and numerous rock formations create the perfect setting for a Scout to learn what it is like to climb “for real”. (No towers or climbing walls at our camp!)

    Rugged Overnighters - Camp BTSR

    Do Something Different On This Scout Overniter!

    A popular new trend in scouting is The Rugged-O. This is an overnight event where the scouts hike into a primitive campsite with the bare minimum of equipment (typically just a sleeping bag and pillow). Another twist on this activity is Bikepacking, where the scout patrol mountain bikes with their sleeping gear to a remote campsite. Contact the Campmaster for info about Rugged-O opportunities at Camp BTSR.
