HSR WEEKEND CAMPING SEASON ‚Äč

The 2017 - 2018 online registration system opens August 21 @ 9 a.m.

The outdoor camping experience is not just for the warm summer months . . . The Chester County Council Horseshoe Scout Reservation offers weekend camping opportunities late September through the month of May. During the weekend camping season our two camps, Horseshoe and Ware, offer the use of shooting sport ranges, slingshot paint ball range, archery range (Camp Ware), COPE (Camp Horseshoe), bouldering wall (Camp Ware), many hiking trails, backcountry leave-no-trace campsites as well as ranger staff that can help your Scouts complete a variety of merit badges (prior arrangements required).   For packs it offers the perfect opportunity to meet the camp-out requirement that is now part of each rank Cub Scouts.  Use the links below to explore our camps and make your reservation.

Exciting News:

We are excited to announce that Camp Horseshoe will have a high-speed fiber network available this summer. As phase 1 of the fiber project, this will allow the Scouts involved in STEM programs to have access to the resources necessary to complete their merit badges. This upgrade will also ensure adults have access to work remotely while supporting their Scouts. Phase 2 of this project is to have the same access at Camp Ware. Thank you to those that donated to the Raise the Signal Campaign and the Order of the Arrow for your contributions. 


Chainsaw Training 

Offered October, December, March and April.  Click here for additional information and a link to register.

TEST DRIVE CUB SCOUTING - RACE TO SCOUTING,   RUN WITH THE PACK

The Chester County Council's Order of the Arrow Lodge, Octoraro 22, is hosting a council-wide Cub Scout recruiting event at Camp Ware on Saturday, October 17. This year's event promises to be more action packed than ever, including the option to stay overnight at camp the night before! If you decide to attend just for the day on Saturday, activities begin at 9am. But this is a, "Come when you can, leave when you must" event! We encourage ALL Cub Scouts (Tigers to Arrow of Lights) to bring a friend with them to share the fun of Cub Scouting. The cost of the event is $10 per youth and $5 per additional family member. ALL Cub Scouts who bring a friend who is not a registered scout will be refunded their $10! The program activities include a night hike, campfire, BB shooting, slingshot paintball, bottle rocket launching, and more! Advancement opportunities will be made available. We will also have activities for Webelos and Arrow of Lights showing them the cool things the Boy Scouts do! We encourage Packs and Dens to attend as units, but the event is open to everyone.
