Rifle and Shotgun Ranges

Part of the BA Extreme Challenge, our shooting ranges are always among the most popular activities.

Climbing Tower/C.O.P.E. Course

For Scouts looking for high-altitude adventures, Bert Adams has a top of the line climbing tower and C.O.P.E. course. Managed by experienced and trained staffers, Scouts can zipline through the trees, tackle team-building ropse courses, and scale the 62-foot climbing tower.

Ashley Leaders Training Center

Leaders, we know how important it is for you to stay connected to the real world while away at camp. The Ashley Leaders Training Center was developed with you in mind as a place to keep in touch with home and work, or simply to visit and learn from other volunteer leaders.
