Camp Cris Dobbins at Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch

Let The Adventure Begin!

Nestled in the middle of the Black Forest, Camp Cris Dobbins offers sweeping views of Pikes Peak and the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Scouts will have a hard time choosing between the more than 50 merit badges offered here, and will love spending time on the water slides at the outdoor pool, dusting a clay at the Olympic shotgun range, channeling their inner movie star in our Moviemaking program, or pretending to be Indiana Jones at our STEM lodge archaeology dig site. The convenience of meals from our dining hall and sleeping on raised wooden platforms in canvas wall tents will allow Scouts to focus on the only thing that matters: their next outdoor adventure!

Life In Camp

Start the morning right, as you enjoy a hearty meal from the dining hall and a morning assembly full of Scouting spirit. After a quick stop by the campsite to grab your day pack and enjoy a jam-packed morning of fun and exciting merit badge sessions. Pick from many Eagle-required merit badges; work on shotgun, rifle, and archery at our world-class shooting facilities; experience true adventure with our climbing and rappelling programs; and jump in to our aquatics programs with sailing, swimming, canoeing, lifesaving, and rowing.

Enjoy a relaxing lunch and afternoon ice cream break at the trading post before gearing back up for more merit badge sessions and free activity time. As the sun sinks below the mountains in the distance, dinner is served and evening assembly gathers everyone together again. But the fun doesn’t stop there! During the evening program, enjoy a number of fun activities and experience parts of camp that only come alive after dark. Make a customized music video in front of our green screen, play volleyball, brand personal items with cool designs, work on your Totin’ Chip, or touch a live tarantula. Finally, once you have had all the fun you can stand, return to your tent and get ready to do it all over again tomorrow.
