Wente Scout Reservation is a Nationally Accredited BSA Scout Camp owned and operated by the Golden Gate Area Council. The Golden Gate Area Council was formed in June 2020 by the merger of the Alameda Council, Mt. Diablo Silverado Council and the San Francisco Bay Area Council. Comprised of over 2200 acres of private property, Wente is one of the largest Scout Camps on the West Coast. Wente Scout Reservation offers a chance to hike, backpack, sail, mountain bike, fish, ride horses, and go rock climbing all in one week. Scouts can try their hand at black powder musket firing, kayaking and rappelling. Expert instruction in popular outdoor skill merit badges will make the Scoutcraft area come alive. Wente is rich in wildlife and allows for the study of conservation, re-forestation, wildlife management, woodcraft and nature study. Rifle, shotgun, and archery shooting are also popular activities. The tall Douglas Fir, Redwoods, Madrones and golden meadows spell adventure for the Unit that likes to rough it and test their skills. Our private 80-acre lake is a great place for swimming, small boat sailing, kayaking, and canoeing, and it is considered one of the warmest lakes in the state. The lake also offers some prime fishin' with many trophy big mouth bass caught by both the expert and novice anglers alike. Wente also hosts three weekends of Family vacation camping during the year as well as other camping experiences for Cub Scouts and other organizations. Don’t let the kids have all the fun. Join us for other family adventures
