Camp Horne is the main council scout camp for Black Warrior Council ( BSA).

Alabama boy scout camp located in east Tuscaloosa County, Camp Horne has been in continuous use since 1924. It is available for use year-round by all Scout units. They offer three weeks of Boy Scout residence camp in June, and that is followed by two sessions of Cub Scout residence camp.

Scout units are encouraged to take advantage of this wonderful outdoor area by completing a Camp Use Permit (below). Camp Horne is perfect for day or weekend activities – plan a visit soon!
