Outdoor Scouting adventure at Magness Adventure Camp

Let the Adventure Begin 

The Outdoor Scouting at Magness (OSM) program is designed for our Lion and Tiger Scouts to have their first true “Summer Camp” experience. The experience is a 24-hour introduction into Cub Scout summer camp. This program includes archery, BB’s, Nature Hikes, Crafts and many other activities at the beautiful Magness Adventure Camp. 

Magness Adventure Camp is located on the west side of Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch in Elbert, Colorado. The camp is approximately a one-hour drive from downtown Denver. From the Magness Tower, the camp boasts sweeping views of the Front Range, including Pikes Peak.
