Heritage Reservation, 1700 acres of unspoiled woodland is the ultimate laboratory for the experience of Scout summer camping. Every campsite is carefully nestled among the trees in Camp Liberty. The activity areas are designed to challenge and thrill every Scout, offering 33 merit badges along with six special older Scout programs.

The large, beautiful lake offers unlimited aquatics adventure, including all the water related merit badges -- Swimming, Fishing, Rowing, Motorboating, Water-skiing, Canoeing and Small Boat Sailing.

In the field sports area, Scouts can test their marksmanship abilities on the .22 rifle range and the target and action archery ranges. In the Ecology-Conservation area, Scouts learn about the natural world in which they live. The Scoutcraft area offers Scouts the opportunity to hone skills in camping, hiking, axemanship, backpacking, wilderness survival and pioneering. The Handicraft area offers instruction in basketry, leatherwork, woodcarving and model rocketry as part of the Space Exploration merit badge.

Camp Liberty                                                                                  It has 14 troop sites, a central area, waterfront, rifle and archery ranges, two troop showers, leaders' and staff shower and a campfire area. The central area consists of the Program Hall (adult centered), Commissary/Quartermaster/Trading Post building (boy centered), parade ground with flagpoles, and a staff dining/lounge building. The waterfront has both swimming and boating areas. The boating area is equipped with canoes, motor boats, rowboats, and sailboats.
