Welcome to Buildings and Facilities

Programs

Any building, facility or piece of property that bears the BSA logo is an important part of our brand identity.  Scouts, leaders and parents enter these facilities with heightened expectations. Lets do our best to meet those expectations. 

NOTE: As part of the National Camp Accreditation Program councils are required to complete an evaluation of all their facilities, rating them and determining what improvements are needed.  Here is the tool for evaluating your properties.
