We are now accepting reservation for 2021! Camp is OPEN and we CAN’T WAIT! Reserve your spot now!

To make your 2021 Summer Camp Reservations, fill out this REGISTRATION FORM.

Reservations require a $100 deposit. Deposit is deducted from the total camp fees and are not refundable or transferable to the following year. This fee holds your troop’s youth reservations at summer camp but does not 100% guarantee your first choice of camp sites. The Summer Camp Director determines final camp site spots for each troop based on number of youth/adults registered within Tentaroo, one week prior to camp. Camp sites are based on the troop’s preferences, date the reservation is received at the office, reservation used the prior year, and miscellaneous camp needs.

Open District Positions

Attention all Cherokee Scouters!  What an exciting time to be a Scout in the Lincoln Heritage Council!  With so many great events planned in the district, it’s no question that Scouting is alive and thriving in the city of Louisville!  From Cub-o-Rees, camp cards, Pinewood Derby’s, and day camp, there is something for everyone! All of our events are managed and staffed by volunteers serving behind the scenes to ensure that our Scouts have the best program possible.  If you or someone you know is looking to get involved on the district level and would like to help volunteer their time and talent please contact Steve Shaw (, Matt Scobee ( or Allison Hoffman ( to discuss our open positions and where we could use some help!  This person can be currently registered with the BSA or an influential member of your community that would like to get involved!
