Programs at Camp

Camp Durant isn’t just for summer camp. Occoneechee Council hosts all sorts of events there year round and even allows units to reserve campsites on their own for unit specific camping. This means that units or even unrelated individuals or groups can reserve facilities on site ranging from just the tents to the cabins to the main dining hall.

A Council employee monitors these requests and confirms via email. Also, we have Camp Campbell in northern North Carolina/southern Virginia on Kerr Lake. This location can also be reserved. For any further information contact Kenna McIntire at 919-665-9619.

See Resources tab for fees.

Cub Scout Summer Camp

If you think we had a blast last year, come on down for two days and three nights of singing, dancing, exploring, creative fun, lots of laughter and fellowship. If you were not with us then here is your opportunity to get in on the fun. Campers will experience program activities at the Ecology Center, Outdoor Skills Area, cooling off in Nello Teer Lake, crafts at our Handicraft Lodge and more modern day shooting sports activities. Theme-related programming and fun activities will round out the program.
