Our History



Canyon Camp was first used as a Boy Scout Camp in 1932, and officially became a camp in 1936. Over the past 80+ years numerous scouts have experienced the spirit of Canyon Camp and have memories that last a lifetime. From working on merit badges to creek stomping down the Apple River and from skits to singing in the dining hall- there are memories abounding.  Canyon Camp is located 8 miles northwest of Stockton, IL nestled in the Apple River Valley.

Learn more about our founding, history documents, and connection with Wetassa and Wulapeju Lodges.  We also have provided additional writings and poems.  Enjoy!
