You can't take the "outing" out of Scouting!


The outdoor program is one of the biggest features about Scouting that appeals to Scouts, and a week at summer camp is one of the top experiences. No one will ever forget the memories and experience from summer camp. The Three Fires Council has another exciting summer awaiting Scouts at Camp Freeland Leslie.

Camp Freeland Leslie is the premier patrol-method camp in the Central Region.  We believe that the patrol is the heart of Scouting, and that teaching Scouts to work as a team is our most important job.  As a “premier patrol method camp", the CFL staff is committed to providing you and your Scouts with a summer camp experience that will last a lifetime!   The staff is hard at work preparing for your visit next summer, and we look forward to serving you in 2016. 

All basic interest forms, Guides and schedules, forms, waivers and rosters can be found at the Camp Freeland Leslie Website link below! 

Please visit the Camp Freeland Leslie Website often as we add new information as it gets closer to camp, & be sure to check the important announcements and dates as they appear.
