Camp Stigwandish was added to the Lake Erie Council in January 2017. Stigwandish is located in Madison, Ohio and offers over 20 campsites, six cabins, four ranges, a GAGA pit, volleyball court, three lakes, a COPE course, trading post, dining hall, training center, nature center and more. The camp sits on the banks of Mill Creek and is over 300 acres.
Camp Stigwandish serves as a home to Cub Scout Day Camp in the summer and also helps out with the Beaumont Scout Reservation summer camp program. September through May, Stigwandish is open to units and families for weekend camping, and service area activities! Stigwandish is the primary home to Scouts in Lake, Geauga and Ashtabula Counties. This camp is a great place to return to nature, yet still being close to home!
Thrive Stigwandish Foundation
Willard A. Friend, first scout executive of the Northeast Ohio Council in 1929 said,
"In looking forward to the coming year it is my hope that we will be able to have our own camp in operation this coming summer. All of our efforts should be toward this end as the camping program of scouting is the major activity."
The statement about Camp Stigwandish is as true today as it was in 1929. Thrive Stigwandish is a group of concerned Scouts and Scouters who believe that a BSA controlled Camp Stigwandish is the cornerstone of the youth program of the Lake Erie Council.
