Ask anyone what they think of when you say “Scouts” and the vast majority will mention camping and the outdoors. That’s why Bert Adams Scout Camp was built to create a summer camping program that is fun, adventurous, and an incredible learning experience with modern facilities.
The 1,300-acre Bert Adams Scout Camp, located in Covington, Georgia, provides state-of-the-art facilities that help create a unique and quality Scouting program that is only at Bert Adams! Scouts can ride their bikes to the air-conditioned Love Dining Hall, swimming pool, Langford Nature Center, Archery, Shotgun, and Rifle Ranges, the beautiful lake, or the climbing tower. Leaders can stay connected to work and home or visit with other volunteers at the Ashley Leaders Training Center. Go ahead and check out other camps in the south...you won't find one like Bert Adams.
Our Scouts BSA summer camp program includes world-class aquatics and shooting sports, along with handicrafts, outdoor skills, cultural studies, nature and ecology, and of course our famous 1st-year camper program, Rawhide. Summer camp at Bert Adams is also home to the River Trek program and the Jamison Canoe Overnight.
From blasting through white water to the ability to earn your choice of over 60 different Merit Badges, it’s easy to see why Woodruff has become the premier camp for Scouts BSA across the nation.
Morning at Woodruff is spent knocking out Merit Badge requirements at our class-leading waterfront, nature/STEM center, field sports, handicraft or shooting sports ranges. In the afternoon, Scouts BSA and their Troops have the opportunity to take on adventure challenges like climbing & rappelling, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, mountain boarding, Ga-Ga ball, interpretive programs, and a variety of aquatic activities. Campfires, movie nights, Vespers, and spoof badge sessions fill the twilight hours before taps close out another great day of camp.
Located in the north Georgia Mountains, Woodruff ’s natural environment gives you unlimited opportunities for adventure. And our renowned first-year-camper mountaineer program means that every Scouts BSA will have the time of their life no matter their experience level.
