The Tomahawk Mission

It's all about growth



Provide fun experiences that develop character, citizenship, fitness, and family.

The Goal

Tomahawk Scout Reservation is your tool for a great summer camp Scouting experience, Tomahawk is utilized by units to meet its goals of carrying out the mission of Scouting through the outdoor program environment. Tomahawk is your ultimate camp experience. Tomahawk holds the values of Scouting in the highest regard and has the ultimate goal of producing young adults that are equipped with character and trained for citizenship. We believe the way to achieve this is through the guidance of passionate adult leadership in a camp environment.

We offer exciting programs, with trained staff, serve great food and strive to help you during the week. But we should never lose track of camp’s main objective: to provide the unit the opportunity to develop their youth.

It is our goal that after your Tomahawk experience your unit returns stronger and better prepared to spend the rest of the year producing young adults with character willing to serve their communities better. Our hope is they would continue the Scouting message in that community to shape more responsible youth for the future.
