Facilities - Shelters

Cary Camp has six shelters on the property. With the exception of the Tepee, each of these is a classic picnic chelter - a square roof without walls. All of them are wired for electricity, and some of them have other amenities as well. (See the Cary Camp Map for locations.)

  • Mosier Shelter - 24' x 30'; concrete floor with 10 picnic tables. Electric light, and 2 110V outlets.
  • Justin Matthew Newell Memorial Shelter ("Newell Shelter" on the map) - 24' x 40'; concrete floor with a fireplace and 8 picnic tables. Electric light, and 4 110V outlets. Newell Shelter also has a fireplace at the south end, built into the end wall. This is the shelter usually used for crafts during summer camp.
  • Osco Drug Shelter ("Osco Shelter" on the map) - 16' x 40'; gravel floor with 4 picnic tables. Electric light, and one 110V outlet. This is the shelter usually used for Archery during summer camp.
  • The Teepee - Octagonal shape, approximately 36' across, with a wooden floor and 5 picnic tables. Electric light and one 110V outlet.
  • Cecil Warner Learning Center ("Warner Shelter" on the map) - 24' x 40'; built in 2006; concrete floor with 9 benches (no tables). There is no electricity at this shelter.
  • Raisor Shelter - 24' x 40'; concrete floored with 6 picnic tables. Electric lights, and two 110V outlets. The Raisor Shelter has a bouldering wall on one side.

All of these shelters are available for rental. To rent one, submit a Scout Usage Form (for Boy Scout groups) or a Non-Scout Usage Form (for others) to the Council Service Center. Non-Scout groups must also submit a Hold-Harmless Agreement and show proof of liability insurance. These forms are available on the Permits & Forms page.
