What is Blue Springs

Blue Springs Scout Reserve is located at 14009 6th Line Nassagaweya, near Acton (Halton Hills), Ontario. Considered the "Hub of Ontario" Blue Springs is within easy driving distance to all that Southern Ontario has to offer.

The original land was acquired about 1937 and since that time has been used as a training centre for adult leaders as well as for youth (and adult) camping and activities. The facilities are available for rent by groups both within and without the scouting organization.

The camp has some 200 acres of natural hardwood and softwood forests, open fields, marshland, swamps and grasslands to explore. In addition, there are several buildings spread out over the camp that can be used as a training/convention centre as well as for group camping. Blue Springs is a four-season camp that has something of interest for all Scouting sections.

Blue Springs is the 1st Canadian SCENES (Scout Centres Of Excellence for Nature and the Environment) camp approved by the World Scouting Organization on June 1, 2005.
