Camp Bowers is your destination for fun, fellowship, and adventure. Nestled in the heart of Southeastern North Carolina, our camp is just a short drive from Wilmington, Fayetteville, and Raleigh. We offer 11 campsites each complete with their own pavilion, latrine, and showers.

Camp Bowers offers a variety of programs for Scouts to participate in, including the Canoe Outpost, Pathfinder Program, Project C.O.P.E. and many more. A picturesque waterfront for canoeing & kayaking, high ropes & low ropes courses, and competitive shooting spots are just a few of the activities available. Located on 1,487 acres of wooded property on Bladen County, it is the perfect home for your next Summer Camp Adventure.

John A. McNeill Cub Scout World


Camp McNeill Cub Scout World offers an adventure of a lifetime for Cub Scout age boys. Program areas include a Gold Mine, Futuristic Space Station, BB and Archery Ranges, an expanded Fitness Trail, an outdoor Basketball Court, and the Julia Butler Playground. Other themes program areas include the Pirate Ship, a Western Fort, the Native American Teepee Village, and Tom Sawyer rafts.  Scouts attending Camp McNeill Cub Scout World will use and visit these amazing areas this Spring as part of our Camp program.

A unique strength of our camp is that we allow Cub Scouts of all ages to attend as a Pack during the same week. Due to the fact most Cub Scouts attending Cub Scout Resident Camp  are about to crossover, we invite our Tiger Cubs to join us as Wolfs, Wolfs to come as Bears, Bears as Webelos 1 and Webelos 1 as Webelos 2.  Most Cub Scout Camps have separate weeks for Webelos versus Cub Scouts. We believe it is far easier on the leadership of a Pack to attend during the same week.
