The Anthony Wayne Area Council has many different program opportunities for the whole family to enjoy annually. Two Family Camp Weekends: a Family Resident Camp and a "Super Scout" Cub-O-Ree, as well as an Adult Weekend Camp. 


All events are at the Anthony Wayne Scout Reservation (AWSR), located in northeast Indiana near the town of Pleasant Lake. The reservation boasts 1200 acres of wooded land, three lakes and a river designed to provide a variety of quality camping experiences available to units and families of the Anthony Wayne Area Council. AWSR is home to 3 camps: Camp Chief Little Turtle, Camp Foellinger & Wilderness Camp. Camp Chief Little Turtle also features family-style cabins complete with 2 bedrooms, a living room, kitchens, full bathrooms and electricity that can be rented for an additional fee.
