Year Round Camp Use
Come explore; we have over 3,000 acres. QSR is open for troop camping throughout most of the year. Plan a hiking trip for your Scouts in our rugged black jack forest, or plan a canoe trip on our beatiful 500 acre lake. You don't even have to worry about bringing your own canoe or row boat. Contact the Quivira Council Program Department at 316-491-2223 for further details or to make reservations. (Note: The lake is not open during summer camp or when water temperatures are below 45 degrees.)
Whether your Scouts are beginning fishermen or more accomplished anglers, you have to come wet your line in the plentiful waters of Murray Gill Lake. Since Murray Gill is enclosed by the property lines of QSR, it is home to some of the best looking fish you have ever seen. With 500 surface acres of water, you are sure to find more than one fishing hole. You can catch small-mouth bass, large-mouth bass, catfish, perch, crappie, walleye and much more.
Volunteer as a Campmaster
Campmasters comprise a group of select registered Scouters who volunteer to serve at one of the two council camps whenever troops, crews, or packs are using any part of the camp property. They usually serve the camps the whole year except for when summer camp is in session. Campmasters select their own time and frequency of service. They usually serve a minimum of two to four times a year . Campermasters are organized under the leadership of an appointed campmaster as a part of the Camping committee.
Campmasters are selected on the basis of their ability in several areas; outdoor skills, conservation, nature, field sports, aquatics, etc. All campmasters must be able to get along with people and be able to follow the rules of the camp as published by the council.
For any of the above activities, contact the Quivira Council Program Department 316-491-2223.
