Ingersoll Scout Reservation

2020 Summer Camp Information 

Register your Troop for Scouts BSA Summer Camp at isrsummercamp.org/camp2020

Ingersoll Scout Reservation is the primary resident camp of the W. D. Boyce Council of the Boy Scouts of America.  Located west of London Mills, IL, the reservation encompasses almost 1,000 acres of woodland and prairie between Fulton and Know Counties.  The Cedar Creek, a tributary of the Spoon River, forms most of the southern boundary of the camp.  Initially founded as Wilderness Camp in 1963, the camp was renamed in 1973 to posthumously honor William P. Ingersoll, a local philanthropist who helped in the camp's initial purchase.  Find out more about Ingersoll Scout Reservation at isrsummercamp.org 

Year-round activities happen at Ingersoll Scout Reservation. One of the main highlights every year is Scouts, BSA Summer Camp. This week-long adventure occurs during adventure-filled weeks from June though July. Scouts can earn merit badges or complete requirements for their ranks, kayak down the Cedar Creek, or cool off in the pool. For those who like high adventure, we offer a 50 ft. climbing tower, C.O.P.E. course, and our famous Outpost Programs. At Ingersoll Scout Reservation, we strive to provide a total summer camp experience in the outdoors.
