Oklahoma's Mountain Experience
The Indian Nations Council is proud to offer you and your Scouts Oklahoma's Mountain Experience. The Council Executive Board, volunteers, and staff have spent countless hours as well as financial resources to make your experience not only productive, but FUN! We will strive and do everything we can to assist in making your summer camping experience the highlight of your year. We appreciate and thank you for allowing Hale Scout Reservation to serve your troop, Scouts, and leaders. We look forward to seeing you at camp!
Hale Scout Reservation is a 620 acre camp located in the beautiful Winding Stair Mountains in Southeastern Oklahoma. Nestles in the Ouachita National Forest, Hale Scout Reservation is a premier summer camp destination for Boy Scout troops from many surrounding states. This camp operates 5 weeks each summer with more than 4,000 Scouts and leaders in attendance. Hale Scout Reservation provides Scouts of all ages with rugged outdoor challenges, high adventure, beautiful scenic views and one of the best summer camp experiences in the nation.
The first difference you will notice at Hale Scout Reservation is the staff. You asked for an older mature staff to give better guidance to the scouts and we listened. The majority of our Staff are of college-age. We feel that an older staff is more experienced and can be better instructors and role models for your Scouts. Involvement is another notable difference of our staff. Each staff member is personally committed to helping each scout develop in Scouting. Whether teaching a merit badge, leading an activity, or working all week to help a Scout learn a simple skill, we believe that one-on-one interaction and treating each Scout as an individual is the most rewarding policy for campers and staff.
