ABOUT Butte Creek Scout Ranch

The moment each Cub Scout steps onto Main Street and lays eyes on the old frontier town of Butte Creek, he or she will find it easy to imagine themselves as part of the wild west. Butte Creek has a western town Main Street, and each day the mail is delivered by the Pony Express.

Hootenanny Party & Street Show

Participate in the “hootenanny,” a party on Main Street featuring games, a moseying contest and includes a special visit from Butte Creek’s very own sheriff. Enjoy a weekly Street Show for the entire family that’s a walk-through the history of the American West.


Each pack stays in a campsite identified by different “brands.” The brands are Setting Sun, Lazy B, Yellow Rose, Happy River, Circle T, 2 of Hearts, Flying J, Rocking K, and the newest site, Walking 3. Meals are served in a large full service dining hall.
