For those of you who will be visiting Bethune for the first time, you are in for a special experience. We believe the High Plains Camporee in Bethune and its special location is one of the best camping events in the Pikes Peak Council. The campsite is situated under the large cottonwood trees on the McArthur Farm outside of Bethune, Colorado (about 10 miles west of Burlington along I-70, and about 16 miles north of the Bethune exit).
Camping in rural Colorado is something very special, because it allows Scouts to return to the basic camping skills of cooking over an open fire made from available downed timber, setting up a tent, and of course, the traditional evening campfire.
Over the past 70 years, the High Plains Camporee has slowly become one of the premier camping events in the Pikes Peak Council. It has become very popular and successful largely due to the vision and efforts of key volunteers in and out of the High Plains District that helped to shape the operation of the camporee, as well as many of the features that have been incorporated into the event.

Webelos Spring Adventure Trail

This trail is a UNIQUE FEATURE of the High Plains Webelos Outdoor Program. It is designed to provide an opportunity for first & second year Webelos to work on several of the Webelos Badge and Arrow of Light requirements by visiting a Boy Scout Outdoor Encampment Activity and participating in a unique Webelos Overnight campout. 

It is our goal that the Webelos have an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors by visiting a Boy Scout troop encampment and excite the Webelos scouts about the camping opportunities that lie ahead for them when they enter Boy Scouting.

The event is part of the High Plains District Camporee that is held in Bethune, Colorado (Eastern Colorado), and features either a day long or overnight camping opportunity for Webelos.
