Camping

The Erie Shores Council has a strong camping tradition right here in Northwest Ohio.  We boast two excellent camping facilities that each have their own stories and tales to tell.  Make sure you take time to visit both and discover the unique opportunities they have to offer.  

Cub Scouts

Other Opportunities

Camp Miakonda Historic Museum

It is the only museum in the world that has one of the three Type IV Hornaday medals on display. The other two are in a private collection. The collection also features Tribe of Gimogash, Philmont, Jamborees, BSA Programs, BSA awards, and uniforms along with handbooks, hand-carved neckerchief slides, and Boys' Life and Scouting magazine collections. Miakonda is the oldest Scout camp in Ohio and the 6th oldest in the country. Discover more.

Order of the Arrow

For more than 90 years, the Order of the Arrow (OA) has recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. This recognition encourages others to live these ideals as well. Arrowmen are known for maintaining camping traditions and spirit, promoting year-round and long term resident camping, and providing cheerful service to others. OA service, activities, adventures, and training for youth and adults are models of quality leadership development and programming that enrich and help to extend Scouting to America's youth.  

High Adventure

Nobody offers more exhilarating or a wider variety of high adventure for young people than the Boy Scouts of America. Through high adventure experiences, The Boy Scouts of America leaves lasting memories with youth and fosters development in character and leadership.  Discover more.

Erie Shores Council Camp Staff

Between the wild-eye eagerness of a Tenderfoot Scout and the dignity of a gray-haired leader, all campers fall under the influence of a group called the camp staff.

Staff members come in assorted sizes, weights, shapes, colors, and types. They have varied interests, hobbies, personalities, religions, and personal habits. Still, they share one creed—to help every camper reach the highest possible degree of Scouting know-how and to have fun in doing it.  Discover more.
