Scout Opportunities

SCOUT CAMPING

Bushy Run is the perfect location for your next scout camping trip or service project! Scouts are welcome to camp out on the battlefield in one of two designated locations. These locations include the top of Flagstaff Hill, located behind the museum and visitor center, or the designated camping area on the South side of the park. A map marking the location of both camping areas can be found below.

The opportunity to camp on the battlefield is open only to scout groups and costs $50.00 per night. However, the fee for all nights of camping may be waived if the group agrees to complete a small service project for the park.

Additionally, our unique Bushy Run Battlefield patch featuring the 250th Anniversary Monument is available at a discounted rate of $2.00 per patch for all scouting groups. The patch can be viewed on our Gift Shop page. If you would like to place an order for patches at our discounted, scout group rate, please contact the site at info@bushyrunbattlefield.com.

If you are interested in camping on the battlefield, please contact the Museum Facilitator at 724-527-5584 ext. 101 or facilitator@bushyrunbattlefield.com. To coordinate camping service projects or for additional information, please contact grounds manager Jesse Casale at 724-527-5584 ext. 105 or jecasale@pa.gov.

SCOUT SERVICE PROJECTS

Bushy Run also offers the opportunity for scouts to complete their Eagle Projects. Dozens of opportunities exist ranging from trail mapping, trail and grounds clean-up, monument and facilities restoration, and more!
