New for 2017: Camp Bowers Outfitted with Brand New Poly Tents. We are excited to announce that we have replaced every tent at Camp Bowers with the new lightweight poly tents. Each tent comes equipped with mesh screen doors, windows, and ventilated ridge lines. Every one of our new tent platforms will hold a new tent. Additionally we have installed Mt. Rippy in our Lake. The 10ft. high Action Tower XXL creates a whole new level of fun for Scouts during free swim. There is still time to register for camp, see the information below.
Camp Bowers, located in the Carolina Bays of Southeastern North Carolina, has been serving Scouts for more than 30 years. The premier summer camp encompasses more than 1,400 acres of pristine Long Leaf Pine Forests along the shores of the 35 acre Lake Katherine. Owned and operated by Cape Fear Council, Camp Bowers provides unique and exciting programs for Scouts of all ages.
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.
