Boy Scout Camp Closes Permanently

An iconic Boy Scout camp in Teton County, Wyoming that has welcomed scouts for 85 years will be closed and transferred to another organization this weekend. Treasure Mountain Scout Camp first opened in 1936, and since that time has seen scouts from multiple generations having camped there and learned their scout craft. The 60-acre camp is located nine miles east of Driggs, Idaho at the western foot of the Tetons, and was one of five overnight camps and one day camp run by the Grand Teton Council. However, in recent years, the camp’s infrastructure has deteriorated, with the cost of bringing the camp up to standards becoming prohibitive when added to the costs associated with the council’s other camps. After this weekend’s formal closing ceremony, volunteers will move the scout camping gear and other supplies to the remaining camps in the council. Then, Grand Teton Council has signed an agreement to transfer control of the National Forest leased property over to the LDS church to be renovated and used as a church camp.
