About Ingersoll Scout Reservation

The program facilities and equipment

Our camp provides a wonderful variety of programs, quality meals, and facilities to meet your unit’s needs and desires. We offer your Scouts approximately forty Merit Badges, nightly specialty programs, and much more.

Advancement opportunities

New Scouts can work with Brownsea Island as they embark on their journey to First Class. The quality of our Merit Badge sessions is a high priority, and we pride ourselves on the knowledge attained by the Scouts after camp.

An enthusiastic, well-trained Staff

Ingersoll Scout Reservation boasts one of the highest quality staffs in the area. Staff training begins immediately as many Area Directors are hard at work planning their areas for your Scout’s summer adventure! The National Camping School certifies numerous staff and they all hold your unit’s enjoyment of camp at the highest priority.

National Camp Standards

Our camp is inspected and certified both by the State of Illinois and the National Office of the Boy Scouts of America. The National Office has rated Ingersoll Scout Reservation with an “A” score for the last 20 summers along with scoring 100% for the past 8 sum-mers.


Not all Scout Troops are alike, and we know that! That is why Scout Troops can develop a program at our summer camp that suits their needs. We’re here to make your week at camp a summer that will last a lifetime!
