With 960 acres of forest, lakes, and rivers, there is always adventure around the corner. ISR is located 45 miles west of Peoria on Illinois Rt. 116 near London Mills, IL. ISR has a rich history and thrives in traditions of the past. But the camp is continually evolving to meet the needs of today's youth.

Year-round activities happen at Ingersoll Scout Reservation. One of the main highlights every year is Boy Scout Summer Camp. This week-long adventure occurs during six adventure-filled weeks from June to August. 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.
