We hope that you, your family and your Scouting families are safe and well. If you have been challenged during this time we offer our thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery. A Scout is Helpful. We welcome your thoughts, comments and requests and will do our best to provide and coordinate any requested assistance as possible.

Camp Shands- Baden Powell Road (A Putnam County Road) has washed out and is closed between Highway 21 and the Camp Shands Entrance. In order to get to Camp Shands you must now access Baden Powell Road from Highway 20.
The Climbing Tower and COPE are closed until further notice. 

St. Johns River Base at Echockotee is closed until further notice. 
Sadly, the damage is substantial. Over 56 trees have fallen, the storm surge has destroyed the docks and excessive debris is scattered about the camp. 

For those who would like to help with the clean-up effort at the St Johns River Base - please call the River Base Ranger - Frank Geer- Cell- 904-250-9981

We could really use some heavy equipment at the River Base:
  • Mini Excavator with a thumb
  • 40 yard dumpster
  • Heavy duty chainsaws with extra chains, gas and bar oil
  • Log splitting machine
