Camping

 

Quivira Council offers some of the best camping opportunities in the Great Plains.  From Camp Kanza , located in the beautiful Ninnescah River Valley southwest of Hutchinson, to  Quivira Scout Ranch in the rugged Black Jack Territory just north of Sedan.
Links on the left will lead you to all of the great adventures awaiting you at a Quivira Council Camp.

The “Delivering the Promise” Capital Campaign has made significant improvements at Camp Kanza and Quivira Scout Ranch.

In 2001 the Executive Board of the Quivira Council approved a capital needs assessment for the Council's two camps and service center.  During 2002, volunteer task forces were formed to review the existing conditions of each Council property and to identify capital needs to support expansion of programs and services to Scouts, leaders and Scouting families.

In late 2004, the recommendations of the task forces were brought to the Executive Board where they were reviewed and approved.  The recommendations were as follows:

 

The Kanza Task Force recommended capital improvements totaling $2,639,000 in three phases over 10 years once construction began.

The Quivira Scout Ranch Task Force recommended capital improvements totaling $3,450,000 phased in over 15 years once construction began.

The Council Service Center Task Force recommended capital improvements totaling $2,200,000.
