Weekend Camping & Facility Rental
The Southwest Florida Council operates two camps that can be used throughout the year. Camp Flying Eagle located on the Little Manatee River in Bradenton and Price Sanders Scout Reservation located on the Cecil B. Webb Wildlife Managment Area in Punta Gorda.
Whether you are part of a Scouting unit, a community organization or a business our camps are a great place to visit. Our camp reservations include campsites, shelters, program areas, shooting ranges, COPE/Climbing, aquatics and more! The booking of these facilities is all processed through the NEW online reservation system. Because of the high demand of our facilities, we require all reservations to be made online with at least 2 weeks notice. Some reservations, such as those for COPE/Climbing, shooting range or aquatics require a 30 day notice. As you make your camp reservation, camps or facilities may not be available on certain dates due to council or district programs, holidays, weather, or in the case of Price Sanders Scout Reservation; hunting season.
For questions concerning OUTSIDE GROUP facility rentals or special programs, please contact Bruce Hassy, Director of Camping & Activities at: 239-936-8072 ext. 117 or Bruce.Hassy@scouting.org.
