Kimball Scout Reservation is a traditional scout summer camp that resembles a wild west mining town. It is located at the base of Mount Potosi which is about 20 degrees cooler than Las Vegas, 40 miles away.

History

KSR is named for Spencer W Kimball, 12th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and a big supporter of the scouting movement.

Amenities

Located at the base of Mt. Potosi, about 35 minutes southwest of Las Vegas and 15 to 20 degrees cooler, beautiful Kimball Scout Reservation is an ideal place for Scouts looking for adventure and advancement. Taking a step back into history, Kimball has been renovated to resemble an old mining town. The adventure begins with over 20 merit badges to choose from, and advancement programs designed to get your younger Scouts to their First Class Rank.

Scouts can earn one or more of the hiking segments by taking many different mountain hikes that lead to spectacular views of the Las Vegas Valley, including an unforgettable night hike that overlooks the light filled valley.

Scoutmasters will enjoy the “Scoutmaster Porch”, located at the Founders Lodge. Here you can cool off, check up on work and home with WiFi, and get all your daily camp information. Units can also enjoy 20 shade structures throughout the camp providing great cool spots for all youth and adult leaders to take advantage of while at Scout Camp.
