Summer Camp 2016

Camp Durant

June 19th - 25th, 2016

 General Information

Camp Durant is the primary summer camping facility of the Occoneechee Council. Camp Durant is a part of the Occoneechee Scout Reservation, a 2,400-acre (9.7 km2) tract in northwestern Moore County, North Carolina. The property straddles the geographic division of the Piedmont and Sandhills regions of North Carolina.

Camp Durant operates as a full-service summer camp for the Scouts of the Occoneechee Council during the months of June, July and August. The Council currently offers five weeks of summer camp but will expand as the attendance increases.
As a result of the “Come with Us and Build Men” Capital Campaign, the Occoneechee Council has completed a complete renovation of the camp. The hallmark of the campaign is the completion of the 700-seat Grand Lodge Dining Hall. This fully air conditioned dining hall will seat the entire camp population at one setting, and boasts four serving lines and a full-service Trading Post and Grill below.  Other facilities improvements include:

  • Rawls Ecology Center
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield Activity Field
  • Simmons Trailblazer Area
  • C. Harrison Smith Aquatics Center
  • Charlie Sullivan Order of the Arrow Lodge Building
  • Preston Health Lodge
  • Handicrafts Area

Camp Durant has fourteen campsites, each divided into two sides. Each campsite also has a shower house, complete with three hot/cold showers and three flushing toilets. These shower houses also allow for electric power during summer camp. The entire camp has also been wired with fiber optic cables, which allows for both wired and wireless highspeed internet connections.
