Camping: Alpine

Just outside of NYC,

only 10 miles north of the George Washington Bridge, Alpine Scout Camp is located in the heart of Alpine, New Jersey. We offer short term camping to Scouts and have a large selection of facilities to suit your group’s needs. We have everything from small tenting sites to a conference center with lodging for over 40 people.


Every weekend from September to June, Alpine Scout Camp hosts a large number of events: District Camporees, Wintorees, Klondike Derbies, and Regional and National Conferences. Alpine Scout Camp also offers a large range of weekend activities like Archery, compass courses, and various in/out of camp hiking trails. The Gary I. Laermer Activity Center includes a 24′ indoor and 32′ outdoor Climbing Wall and a brand new Low COPE Course.


In July and August Alpine’s John E. Reeves Cub World is in operation, boasting a skilled staff and exciting program tailored appropriately for Cub Scouts and their siblings.
