Why Mataguay Scout Ranch?

A Scoutmasters work is never done. 52 weeks a year the Scoutmaster and other Scouters work to deliver a great program for their Scouts. Summer Camp is only 1 of 52 weeks. But it is perhaps the most important.

If a Scout attends a week long summer camp, he is more likely to be active in your unit for the next year. He will build or rebuild relationships with other Scouts and the leaders. He will be immersed in the fun of Scouting for an entire week. He will earn awards and badges which will help to inspire continues advancement. No matter where he is in Scouting, it will supercharge him.

Mataguay Scout Ranch is dedicated to making your Summer Camp week, a special one. We offer a wide range of opportunities to boost any scout. Activities like glider and horseback rides will put the spark in any Scout, our natural climbing walls and COPE activities provide a new challenge from the normal camp, and what boy doesn't get a kick out of a shotgun? The Track Program, unique to Mataguay Scout Ranch, provides a special learning environment for Scouts to work on a collection of similar merit badges with numerous benefits.

We are committed to all Scouts attending camp which is why Mataguay Scout Ranch works hard to keep the cost of camp as low as possible, without sacrificing quality. Through the generosity of council supporters we also provide over $10,000 in camperships to help Scouts and their families.

It is our promise to you that your Scouts will have a week of camp that they will never forget.
