Your campsite will be your home for the week at Wente Scout Reservation. Each campsite has wooden tent platforms with two-man canvas tents.
Your campsite will also have the following:
- A central fire ring and fire tools
- A bulletin board
- A flag pole (you should bring your own US Flag to fly during your stay at camp)
- A nearby washstand and kybo.
Remember a Scout is clean and your campsite should be a reflection of that. The site should be kept free from litter and your kybo should be cleaned on a daily basis.
All campsite garbage should be emptied nightly as to not attract wildlife. The garbage dumpster is located west of the Dining Hall. You can pick up some garbage bags in the Dining Hall. There are no garbage cans in the campsites because they cause a false sence of security from the wild critters.
Some units find it helpful to have their tenting arangements worked out before arriving at camp. It makes for more time on arrival day for other issuses that may arrise. If you are one of those units, here are the maps of the camp sites and their suggested maximum occupancy for the number of tents that are there.

Family Camp Map
As it sounds, is an open grassy area that can hold about 8 familys. In the spring it is still a bit marshy, so it is only open in the late-summer weekends.
The RV Sites are a place to camp in your RV or trailer. There is water and electrical and an additional fee for the weekend.
