Design Guidelines

Return to Properties

The attached library of guidelines is intended for use by Scouting rangers, volunteers, and professionals who are involved with camp property. They are not intended to be hard and fast rules. The BSA has camp standards and local building code to fill that role. Rather, the intent is to guide the user in making good design decisions, illustrating the unique nature of camp versus commercial or residential construction.

Note about shooting sports ranges: Berm heights are under review and possible revision. Call the Outdoor Programs/Properties Department for information.
