Ideas for activities to do year-round at ISR:
There is no charge for Scout Groups to fish on Lake Roberts. Bring your own equipment or borrow some of the camp’s at Greg’s Fish Shack! A Boy’s Life recent survey found that Scouts chose fishing as the fourth most preferred activity, yet only 35% go fishing with Scouting. Lake Roberts is a “fish factory” producing way above average number of fish for a lake its size. Find more fishing tips from the Council Fishing Committee’s Catch ’em Like Kevin document written in 2019.
Hike the Cedar Creek Trail
The Cedar Creek Trail is a trail system that loops around the entire camp. Whether you’re just wanting to go on a day hike or practice backpacking for a Philmont Trek, the Cedar Creek Trail has different length loops available and suitable for all ages.

Troop Climbing and Shooting Days
The W. D. Boyce Climbing and Shooting Committees plan Climbing and Shooting Days in the Spring and Fall every year at ISR. Scout BSA Troops and Venture Crews come out to ISR to Climb, Shoot, or Both! Space is limited each day so make your reservations early! Reservations must be made 2 weeks prior to the event. Make it a full weekend with your unit by camping out at ISR by filling out a Camp Use Form!
Scout BSA Troops are able to rent the camp’s Mountain Bikes to go trail riding. Participants must have a current BSA Medical Form parts A & B and watch a safety video before coming to camp. Bikes will be available from 8:30 am until 30 minutes before sunset. The cost is $100 for up to 15 bikes. Contact Collin Martis (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information and rentals.
