Short Term Camping Reservations

The Miami Valley Council has two properties with various camping opportunities available for groups of all sizes. Cricket Holler Scout Camp is 20 minutes from the US Air Force Museum and offers cabins for groups or tent camping. The Schiewetz Leadership Training Center at Cricket Holler Scout Camp has a conference center for half day, full day or extended events. Woodland Trails Scout Reservation located in Camden offers great year-round unit activity cabins and tent camping opportunities. Facilities are available at both properties for weddings and special events.

All reservations for facility use are made online.

If you have an event that is five days or more please contact the Miami Valley Council at 937-278-4825 or to discuss extended stay rates.

Camp Use Guidelines:

Camp use guidelines were developed to ensure the health and safety of all of our campers and to ensure the facilities at our camps will be around for future generations of campers.

Timely Reservations:

To better manage our camps, we request that units make facility reservations at least one week in advance. That way we can assure that the camp is properly staffed for your arrival. You may book reservations up to one year in advance.

The online reservation system blocks all attempts to make a reservation less than one week prior to a desired date.  Units requesting a short term camp reservation less than a week before a desired camping trip must contact Customer Service Representative at 937-278-4825.

Reservation Payment Methods:

Credit cards and e-checks are accepted.  All payments are made and paid in full online at time of reservation.  You can make multiple reservations before checking out.  


Facility Reservation cancellations received 60 days before the use date will be refunded 100%. Cancellations received between 59 and 30 days before the use date will be refunded 50%. No refunds for cancellations within 29 days of the use date.

At the time of reservation an estimated attendance will be used for number of campers. This estimate will be locked in on day 29 and no refunds issued for over estimates. Payment is made to the caretaker, camp master or ranger at time of check in for any additional attendees.

Reservations for extended stays may have terms defined in a separate agreement that may be more stringent then the policy described above. 

Requests for refunds must be e-mailed to or mailed to the Council Service Center.
