Camp Benjamin Hawkins

Camping is an important part of the Scouting program. Getting outdoors helps our youth to overcome challenges and learn skills in a unique environment. Time in the great outdoors is a great way for youth to learn new abilities and create lifelong memories! 

The Central Georgia Council offers a Cub Scout summer resident camp at Camp Benjamin Hawkins in Byron, GA, as well as a Scouts BSA Winter Camp, fall camporees and cuborees, trainings, and more!
