Schiewetz Leadership Training Center
The Schiewetz Leadership Training Center is a cutting edge outdoor education facility located just minutes from downtown Dayton. The campus features a large training center with ample room for small group breakout sessions and four luxurious cabins featuring a kitchen, two showers and commons room, for overnight accommodations. This facility makes a great location for corporate retreats, annual meetings, receptions, birthday parties, wedding receptions and training events.
The Miami Valley Council owns and operates two properties: Cricket Holler Scout Camp and Woodland Trails Scout Reservation. Both make ideal camping destinations for Packs, Troops, Crews, and outside organizations. Each camp has features that provide a unique experience for your group.
Cricket Holler Scout Camp
The campgrounds feature rustic campsites for tent camping, Adirondack shelters, the Kiwanis Lodge, and several small fields for group activities. Want to rough it for a weekend? Try one of our wilderness campsites deep in the woods of Cricket Holler.
Woodland Trails Scout Reservation
During the summer, Woodland Trails is transformed into one of the premier camping facilities in the Midwest. During the fall, winter, and spring, the camp becomes a top weekend camping destination. The property features a large dining hall and commercial kitchen, archery, rifle and shotgun ranges, lakefront, pool, and miles of trails throughout the property. Campsites are available in the off season, just bring your tents and pitch them on wooden platforms located in each campsite.
Rental Guidelines and Policies
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.
To better manage our camps, we request that units make facility reservations at least one week in advance. That way we can assure you 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 the desired date. Units requesting a short term camp reservation less than a week before the desired camping trip must contact Customer Service Representative at 937-278-4825.
Reservation Payment Methods:
Credit cards, e-checks, and mail-in payments are accepted. All payments are made and paid in full prior to your reservation start date.
Facility Reservation cancellations received 30 days before the use date will be refunded 100%. Cancellations received between 14 and 30 days before the use date will be refunded 50%. No refunds for cancellations within 14 days of the use date. Reservations for extended stays may have terms defined in a separate agreement that may be more stringent than the policy described above.
Email Camping@MiamiValleyBSA.org to request a refund, or mail a request to the Council Service Center.
