COVID-19 UPDATE: September 30, 2020 – The Medical Advisory Committee of the Alamo Area Council has determined, in concert with state regulations, that units may immediately begin camping in groups no larger than 50 provided that the following guidelines are adhered to:
– Pre-outing screenings, including temperature checks, will be conducted on all participants
– Temperatures of all participants will be re-checked at least twice daily
– Frequent hand washing will be encouraged
– Social distancing of at least 6 feet will be enforced whenever possible
– Masks are to be worn whenever possible and especially at times when social distancing is not possible
– Continue to follow the Tenting, Food Preparation and Transportation guidelines laid out in the AAC Unit Restart Guidebook previously distributed.

Cub Scout Packs Camping Outside BSA Properties
If your Unit would like to camp at a facility other than McGimsey Scout Park, Mays Family Scout Ranch, Bear Creek Scout Reservation, or a State Park, you 100% MUST complete this form and submit it to Adventure@alamoareabsa.org
ALL requests require Council Approval
RESERVATIONS CAN ONLY BE MADE 1 YEAR IN ADVANCE. IF YOU SELECT A DATE FURTHER OUT THAN 1 YEAR THE SYSTEM WILL SHOW IT AS UNAVAILABLE.
To better manage our camps, we request that units make facility reservations at least two weeks in advance. That way we can assure that the camp is properly staffed.
The online reservation system blocks all attempts to make a reservation less than two weeks prior to a desired date. Units requesting a short-term camp reservation less than two weeks before a desired camping trip must contact Rentals@AlamoAreaBSA.org to check availability.
Credit cards and eChecks are accepted online. Cash and check payments must be processed in-person.
You can make multiple reservations prior to check-out by selecting “add items” and selecting another facility/campsite.
To make a full weekend reservation, please select the Saturday date as the date of rental to see availability from Friday to Saturday and Saturday to Sunday.
Please contact us at Rentals@AlamoAreaBSA.org for more information. Non-Scouting Groups may reserve campsites and facilities at BCSR or MFSR.
Due to deed restrictions McGimsey Scout Park may only be rented out to BSA chartered units.
Rentals cancelled earlier than 3 days prior to the arrival of the reservation are transferable; otherwise you will receive a refund by check minus a 20% cancellation fee. If the reservation is cancelled within 3 days, no refund will be given. Transferable reservations are only valid within the same calendar year of cancellation of original date. Example: if the original reservation was planned for June and cancelled sooner than 3 days, transferred reservation must be used by December 31st of the same year.
All refund requests must be made in writing to Refunds@AlamoAreaBSA.org
