Summer Camp 2023 – Camp Buck Toms, Tennessee

Located on the shores of a private cove on Watts Bar Lake in Roane County, Camp Buck Toms is the pride of the Great Smoky Mountain Council. Unlimited opportunities for adventure and growth await among our scenic hills dotted with Indian mounds and rich in wildlife.

Sixteen campsites – each with a mix of four- and eight-person Adirondacks and an 18? x 20? shelter with electricity – accommodate more than 600 Scouts. Our modern, spacious dining hall with full commercial kitchen feeds campers quickly and comfortably, our training center hosts expanded STEM programming, and the Jane Manly Museum preserves the council’s rich history.
