Bear Lake Aquatics Base

Bear Lake is Utah's second largest freshwater lake.  It covers 71,000 surface acres; has 48 miles of shoreline, straddles the Utah/Idaho border, and is home to one of the premier camps of the Great Salt Lake Council.  Bear Lake Aquatics Base was founded on the east shore of Bear Lake in the early 1960's.  Over the years, the camp has expanded its facilities and programs, offering a diverse program for the Scouts who attend the camp.

Many of the programs and activities can only be found at Bear Lake Aquatics Base.  Scouts can choose from exciting water activities that include: sailing boat excursions, water skiing, catamarans, snorkeling or the ever popular canoe outpost!  These activities allow the Scouts to build confidence and self-esteem in themselves while creating lasting memories.

Choose from among 35 merit badges to help your Scouts continue their journey to Eagle Scout rank. However, camp offers more than just merit badge classes. Units are highly encouraged to participate in some of our additional program activities, such as:

  • Camp wide flag ceremonies
  • Service projects
  • Troop Night
  • Camp wide games
  • Scoutmaster shoot off
  • Large boat sailing
