FAMILY ADVENTURE CAMP
Family Adventure Camp is an exciting opportunity for your family to enjoy the rugged outdoors, beauty, and activities of a premier Scout camp at Camp Fleischmann. Family camp is a place to relax, hike, swim, enjoy nature, read a book, or participate in many other exciting activities for only a fraction of the cost of a hotel or resort vacation. At Camp Fleischmann, you’ll have the opportunity to boat or spend an evening fishing with your family. Special activities will be held throughout your stay. Family camp is held concurrently with our Cub & Webelos Scouts' Adventure Camps, so you will have an opportunity to work on some advancement as well.
WHO MAY PARTICIPATE?
The families of anyone registered in the Boy Scouts of America (that’s Tigers, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers, Sea Scouts, Explorers, and adults) may participate. You can bring along friends too, but they must only be camping when you are. Family Camp is intended for families, although many units use this as a great way to have fun and socialize with other families from their unit.
ACCOMMODATIONS ARE CAMPING!
Like most national, state, or private campgrounds, your sleeping arrangements are camping. You will be bringing your own tents, sleeping bags, and teddy bear. You will be assigned a campsite area to set up your tent when you arrive at camp.
Eat like the Scouts do during summer camp. Varied and nutritious meals are included in your camp fees. Families may wish to supplement their meals with special things like s’mores. Each campsite has a campfire ring and will be shared by several families. What a great way to share the evening in fellowship! All food MUST be stored in your vehicles at night. Fleischmann is in bear country, and bears do occasionally pass through camp. Please do not leave snacks out since it only encourages a longer stay in camp by animals. Camp has many small animals who should not be fed people food. Our camp store also carries candy, soda pop, ice cream, and more.
You will enjoy seeing the variety of wildlife as you walk the many trails of camp. You can relax for hours and watch a colorful bird, a shy deer, or a mischievous squirrel at play. Use your camera, and the memories will last forever. Always popular are the archery range, the rifle range, and the shotgun range. Camp provides the equipment and instruction. We have bows just right for the small ones! Do NOT bring your own equipment or ammo to camp.
One of our most popular areas is our craft area. Drop in to express your creativity with the items at hand. In the evening, have a campfire and invite your neighbors. Some evenings, we have a campwide campfire or other activity. Check the schedule for daily camp activities. Use camp as your base of operations and explore the surrounding areas. We are only minutes from the great sport fishing at Lake Almanor or even closer to the back entrances of Lassen Volcanic National Park.
Our own lake provides a great place to lay in the sun or to swim on a warm afternoon. We feature a great waterfront for swimming, to row a boat, paddle a canoe, or just lean back and enjoy the sun as a stiff breeze pushes you along in one of the sailboats from our fleet. If you don’t know how, we’ll teach you. All family campers are subject to the same swimming requirements that Cub Scouts experience. Tests are taken to determine non-swimmer, beginner, or swimmer classifications. Safety is a top priority at family camp!
There really aren’t many rules at Family Adventure Camp. The Scout Oath and Law are applicable at all times in Scout Camp, and we have a few other guidelines for your safety. You can make a copy of the Parent and Leader Guide that is posted here on the website.
- You MUST check in and out of camp! DO NOT just go to a site and set up, you might be asked to move!
- NO ALCOHOL IS PERMITTED IN CAMP.
- Pets are NOT PERMITTED.
- Bicycles are not permitted at Family Camp due to the environmental impact on the trails and hillsides. Please leave them at home – and enjoy walking, hiking, or swimming.
