  • FREE Camping!!!
  • That's right... Free!
    Boy Scout troops from our council are welcome to weekend tent camp at Merz or Elk Lick for free, as long as you agree to do a 2 hour service project for the camp.
    You must submit the normal paperwork to reserve a site in advance so the ranger has lead time to contact you about what projects are on his list. Click Here for more information
