Camping & Council Camps

Year round camping is very important in our council. Warner Scout Reservation is home to Camp
Tukabatchee and Camp Dexter C. Hobbs and both camps offer multiple opportunities for year round camping.

Camp Tukabatchee opened in the summer 2000. The camp features a 50-acre lake for swimming, rowing, canoeing, sailing, and fishing. A complete C.O.P.E course and climbing/rappelling wall are located along the Dawson Environmental Trail at camp. Check out our Camp Tukabatchee site for more information including summer camp.

Camp Dexter C. Hobbs is on the site of the old Camp Tukabatchee (1950-1999). From 1999 to 2005 the old camp was transformed into our Cub Scout and family camp. A large pavillion and several sleeping cabins are some of the features of camp. Camp Hobbs is home to the annual Webelos Resident Camp each summer. More information can be found on the Camp Hobbs page.
Both camps are available for weekend and off season use by Packs, Troops, and other groups. Check out the weekend use page or contact Denise Miller at the council service center at 334-262-2697 for reservations. Download a usage permit for Camp Hobbs here!

Notice Regarding use of Camp Hobbs or Camp Tukabatchee
In recent weeks some scout units and individuals or families have arrived at camp unannounced and without a camp use permit. Situations of this type present difficulty for those assisting at camp like our campmasters and Camp Ranger and also create concerns related to those campers who have pre-planned their weekend outings. While our camps and camp properties are available for our members most weekends this is not always the case and in some instances the entire property is reserved. We must assure that ALL those who go to camp first follow the procedure of completing and submitting a camp use permit. Permits for camp use and instructions for filing permits may be found on this website. Please help us make the outdoor experience the best possible by following the prescribed rules.
