Camp Keisel: A Versatile Camp For Nearly 90 Years

Camp Kiesel is a magical place nestled at the bottom of a steep canyon about 25 miles east of Ogden, Utah. Originally established as a resident Boy Scout camp, Kiesel has served the Cub Scouts for most of its existence. For over 80 years, Camp Keisel has served Scouting youth!

Last year, Camp Keisel served nearly 12,000 Cub Scout youth and just over 1,400 Cub Scout units, not to mention the large number of Scout troops, Varsity teams, and Venture crews who used the facility for an overnight camp or winter camp experience.

Because of its proximity to civilization, facilities, and set-up, Camp Kiesel hosts multiple adult leader trainings on an annual basis.With the combination of the natural beauty of the mountains that surround the camp, the canyons that make up the camp, and nearby Causey reservoir Camp Kiesel also serves as an ideal training facility.

Regardless of your reason in coming to Camp Kiesel, you will not be disappointed by the experience that will greet you: a meshing of the grand history and bright future of Scouting.

My son Noah and I had a great time at your camp today. This was better than any vacation we ever had. Even it was only one day away from the Hustle and bustle of everyday life. To me it felt like stepping back in time. We had a lot of fun. Your staff were really great. We came up with my son's cub scout pack 558, from Layton, Fox Creek Ward. Again thank you for a great time and for bringing me and my son closer together.
