Perkins Scout Reservation

A gift from Mr. & Mrs. J. J. Perkins, this Northwest Texas Council property is about 60 acres of camping paradise. 

Located between Sheppard Air Force Base and Burkburnett, the camp is close enough to towns to be convenient and remote enough to offer a fun camping experience. Many council sponsored activities take place at Camp Perkins and packs, troops and crews are welcome to use the camp for their own day and overnight events. Charter partners with the Northwest Texas Council are also welcome to utilize the camp. 

Camp Ranger Jeremy White works hard to keep the camp mowed and all the facilities in good shape. Some fees are necessary to help maintain the camp and are stated below. 

To reserve all or part of the camp, please contact the NWTC Service Center at nwtcguestservice@bsamail.org or 940-696-2735.  Please include a daytime phone number in your email or voicemail. 

Any persons or groups wishing to use Camp Perkins facilities or equipment must complete the appropriate Camp Reservation Form and submit it along with any fees to the Scout Office for approval. Fees and requirements are listed on the Reservation form depending on the group requesting Camp usage. Two-week notice prior to event is highly recommended!!
