The Beginnings of the New Camp Hunt

Thanks to a large donation by TIFIE Humanitarian the scenes around Camp Hunt are beginning to look better and better with each passing day. The addition of 4 new sail boats, 2 new powerboats, new docks, and a new nature center have improved an already strong program. Inside the lodge the bathrooms have been completely redone, and the kitchen has a new convection oven, and tilt skillet to go along with a new tile floor. The outside of the lodge has also received a face lift with the lower third of the building finally getting the rock finish it deserved. New stairs will dress the backside of the building and a new entry way will be added to the front that will be ADA compliant. New green roofing has been put on all of the building and a new lawn has been added to the flag ceremony area. A new First Aid building has been completed and old cabin has been completely restored to look like new. A new fence will dress up the camp and new trees and shrubs will be planted to spruce up the camp.

The biggest improvements to Camp Hunt will be the addition of the new boathouse. This will be a two story building with living quarters on the upper level and boat storage and a work shop on the lower level. A look out tower will be added to the north end of the building and a covered deck will face Bear Lake. A new shower and bathroom building will be built at the north end of camp in the center of all the campsites and a second shower and bathroom will be built on the south end of camp for our High Adventure participants.

Adventure Base 100

Thousands of Utah Scouts and families visit Adventure Base 100.

Adventure Base 100 is a traveling Semi truck that breaks down into an scouting activity center for everyone to enjoy. The Adventure Base 100 truck has been canvasing the country with a purpose of sharing the 100 year birthday celebration of the Boy Scouts of America with the entire country. The Semi made it's stop in Utah at the South Town Mall and scouts from Trapper Trails Council, Great Salt Lake Council, and Utah National Parks Council shared in this wonderful experience.

Thanks to the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America for providing the Adventure Base and thank you to the many volunteers that staffed this event.

The climbing wall seen in the pictures has been donated and will be a permanent part of Camp Fife.
