2023 Summer Camp at Kia Kima Scout Reservation

Scouts BSA summer camp at Kia Kima is a premier camping experience for your Scouts! Join us in the beautiful Arkansas Ozarks for camping, swimming, climbing, fishing, and so much more. At Kia Kima, Scouts and leaders make memories that last a lifetime! 

There are two camps on Kia Kima Scout Reservation:

  • Camp Cherokee (open Week 1, June 11-17, and Week 2, June 18-24) offers a small-camp setting centered around the gorgeous John A. Cooper Lake. Troops camping in Cherokee cook their food, which is dispensed from the Commissary. The weekly capacity of Camp Cherokee is 175. 
  • Camp Osage (open Week 1, June 11-17; Week 2, June 18-24; Week 3, June 25-July 1; Week 4, July 2-8; and Week 5, June 9-15), the larger of the two camps, offers a traditional camp setting, with food served in the Dining Hall, above the serene South Fork River. The weekly capacity of Camp Osage is 550. 

Use the buttons below to make a reservation for the week of camp during which your troop wants to attend. You may elect to make a $100.00 campsite deposit when you register, but this is optional. 

Please contact the Chickasaw Council office if you have any questions or if you need assistance placing a reservation.
