About STSR

Since 1961, Spanish Trail Scout Reservation has served the scouts of the Gulf Coast Council. With over 1400 acres, STSR is one of the largest camps in the southeast. It offers a full range of facilities: a 40-acre lake for swimming, canoeing, and fishing; a dining hall; and numerous places to camp.

In addition to being available for scout groups, STSR is used on a year-round basis for Cub Scout Activities, Webelos Weekends, Family Camps, Woodbadge, District Camporees, and of course, Summer Camp.

Individual units are encouraged to make use of the campgrounds during non-event weekends. Units must complete a camping reservation form in addition to a tour permit. The camping reservation form also permits the use of family cabins and canoe rentals. If available, canoes and trailers may be rented for offsite use by units, using the Canoe Equipment Rental Form.

Summer Camp - Spanish Trail Scout Reservation

STSR has been the highlight of many boys' Scouting year for over 40 years. We begin by selecting a high-caliber staff of young men and adults, and giving them literally hundreds of hours of training. We strive to add new and exciting opportunities every year. For instance, we began Euchee Tech, which gave scouts the chance to be a DJ at an actual radio station broadcasting from Camp Euchee. In addition to traditional merit badges like Camping and Canoeing, scouts also had the chance to take cutting-edge merit badges like Electricity and Electronics. For detailed information about Summer Camp at Spanish Trail Scout Reservation look under forms.

High Adventure

The Boy Scouts of America offers three High Adventure Bases.  

Philmont Scout Ranch—the Boy Scouts of America's premier high-adventure base—challenges Scouts and Venturers with more than 200 square miles of rugged New Mexico wilderness. Backpacking treks, horseback cavalcades, and training and service programs offer young people many ways to experience this legendary country. Link

The Florida National High Adventure Sea Base operates nine different adventures out of three different locations: two in the Florida Keys, and one in Marsh Harbor, Bahamas. Link

Welcome to the Northern Tier. You are stepping into a country explored by few people. From June through August, Northern Tier takes pride in offering Scouts the world's best canoeing. Link
