What is Camp Belzer?

Acclaimed as the world's greatest day camp, Belzer offers tons of opportunities to the Scouts and non-Scouts in Central Indiana. We have been in operation for nearly 100 years on a 200 acre facility surrounded by forest in the middle of the city. Belzer is the ideal stomping grounds for the youth to grow, play, and learn.

It is our goal to provide new experiences of the highest quality for every child who enters our gate. Belzer strives to keep everything unique, practical, and informative throughout the entirety of your visit.

The facility is second to none; our program and staff cannot be duplicated at any standard group function. Wether you are sending your child to one of our summer programs, or planning a corporate event, we have the resources you need to be successful and enjoyable.


Absolutely NOT!
Camp Belzer is owned and maintained by the Boy Scouts of America, and the largest percentage of people who utilize our camp are Scouts. However, we also have a Community Day Camp during the summer open to everyone ages 6-11 and we frequently host corporate events, gatherings, and weddings!
When the summer camps are not in operation, camping is common place at Belzer. During the summer months, we host a family campout every Friday night for the day camp participants.
Belzer offers 3 summer programs designed to fit most needs. Our Cub Camp is designed for Packs who attend camp as a unit, we often call this "traditional Camp". Boy Scouts can signup as individuals and participate in Baden Powell to work on Merit Badges and rank requirements. Finally, our Community Camp is designed for ALL kids ages 6-11 who want to attend camp, but cannot come with a unit. Kids in community camp do not have to be Scouts.
Yes, we want everyone to be able to experience Belzer. You have two options: #1 ask another pack if your son can attend camp with them or #2 enroll him in Community Camp.
It is up to the pack leadership to keep track of all the adventures completed over the course of the week; however, we do have a little tool to help you keep track of all the advancement. (coming soon)
