Camp Rockefeller is home to the Quapaw Area Council's resident camp and weekend camping programs. Camp Rockefeller can be found within the 3,000 acre Gus Blass Scout Reservation in Damascus, Arkansas. Camp Rockefeller is located on one of the most beautiful tracts of land in the state. Here you will find lakes, streams, caves, creeks, hills, mountains, forests, and fields scattered throughout the reservation.
Camp Rockefeller is located approximately two miles off of Arkansas Highway 65--25 miles north of Conway, Arkansas, and 45 miles north of Little Rock. Although Camp Rockefeller is situated in the middle of thousands of acres of wilderness, unit leaders do not have to travel far for resources should the need arise. Several nearby stores keep basic supplies handy and a 24-hour Wal-mart Supercenter is just minutes away.
The amenities at Gus Blass Scout Reservation and Camp Rockefeller are second-to-none. The camp's facilities include 25 campsites, a lake and ponds, a boating waterfront, an Olympic-size swimming pool, an air-conditioned dining hall, a council fire ring, a chapel, a well-stocked trading post, climbing tower, COPE team building course, an administration center, numerous program areas, and the 21,000 square foot Donald W. Reynolds Scout Training Center.
Camp Rockefeller has a fantastic safety record and we work hard to keep it that way. Our Health Lodge is centrally located in camp and it is staffed by certified personnel 24 hours a day. Our health and safety officers stay up-to-date on the latest health care policies and safety guidelines.
Also, Camp Rockefeller rangers and staff have an excellent working relationship with local emergency service providers.
Even though Camp Rockefeller is off the beaten path, we have numerous security features which help us maintain our high safety rating. Electronic gates, comprehensive check-in measures, and background checks are all standard procedures here at camp.
Thanks to generous donations from Scouting supporters, most of our facilities are new or have been renovated recently. Improvements include new concrete tent-pads with metal frames in all campsites, new larger 10X12 tents for adult leaders, a renovated kitchen in the dining hall, new air conditioning in the dining hall and administration building, reconfigured campfire ring, a new 8-hole flying disk golf course, and a revamped trading post complete with air conditioning.
The Donald W. Reynolds Scout Training Center is the training facility in the state of Arkansas. Scouts and leaders alike regularly receive instruction and accommodations at this state-of-the-art Scout Training Center. Amenities include high speed wireless internet, 28 air-conditioned bedrooms with luxurious bathroom facilities, 3 large classrooms, a beautiful lobby with fireplace, and a 300-seat dining hall.
Finally, the program at Camp Rockefeller is out of this world. Our camp staff offers completely customized programs for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, and adult leaders. Here at camp you will find an overwhelming offering of learning and training opportunities, special programs, awards, and achievements. The activities at Camp Rockefeller are non-stop, challenging, and, most importantly, fun.
