Camp Tahosa

Since 1938, Camp Tahosa has been the adventure playground of choice for Scouts BSA troops. Sitting at a whopping 9,000 feet in elevation (1.7 miles above sea level), campers share a world with moose, trout, mountain lions, elk, river otters, and bears. Endless skies, stunning views, and crisp mountain air lets participants leave the world behind and truly enjoy this little Rocky Mountain camp.
