Winnebago Scout Reservation

Come join us at one of the finest and longest-running Scout BSA camps in the USA. Situated in the heart of the Copperas Mountains in Rockaway NJ, Winnebago is only 40 miles from the hustle of New York City and yet so quiet. The reservation encompasses more than 450 acres of woodland for camping, hiking, and outdoor adventure. Durham Pond covers 60 acres for swimming, sailing, boating and amazing bass fishing. Winnebago has large, private campsites for a great summer camp experience. During the summer, we offer resident camp for troops and individuals.

The Winnebago Leaders' Guide is now available in the Forms section below.   New!  Complete Merit Badge spreadsheet.
