Troop Camping Information

Kanawahala​ Program Center (KPC) is made for those who love water activities with its 40-acre private lake and junior Olympic-sized swimming pool. There's mountain biking and a 35-foot climbing tower with attached high and low ropes course elements to offer you challenging and adventurous activities.

A central building houses archery and crafts program areas, a covered area for activities and rainy day events, and the camps healthcare facilities. You'll stay in one of the two dorm-style bunkhouses.

Our campers stay in each room with two sets of bunks and a small sitting area. The unit leader and camp counselors are housed nearby in separate quarters. Adjoining the bunkhouse are large lodges that include meeting space, a small kitchen, an outdoor picnic area, and bathroom facilities for each bunkhouse unit. With 10 rooms each, bunkhouses provide air-conditioned sleeping space for 80 campers and staff.
