Yards Creek Scout Reservation is located in Blairstown, New Jersey, within hiking distance of the Appalachian Trail and the Delaware River, and an easy drive to the Delaware Water Gap. Currently, the camp is limited to short-term use.
Friends of Yards Creek Scout Reservation is a group of concerned Scouts, Scouters, and volunteers who would like to improve the quality of the scout camps in their council. By working side by side with our council, Friends of Yards Creek Scout Reservation will raise funds and material donations to improve the quality of Yards Creek Scout Reservation so a quality scouting program may be available in the future. Although funds may not be available through council for this purpose, Friends of Yards Creek Scout Reservation will provide services through its volunteer membership to help improve the structures and camping facilities to ensure a quality scout camp is available for Scouts for future generations.
We aim to preserve the values instilled by Scouting: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
