Boy Scouts of America: Camp Belzer

As part of an extensive 7-camp planning effort, TKWA worked with Scouts BSA’s Crossroads of America Council to help reimagine the experience and facilities at Camp Belzer.  Located on the northeast side of Indianapolis Camp Belzer began serving Scouting in 1918 as a Boy Scout Resident Camp. In recent years Camp Belzer has largely served as a Cub Scout Day camp during the summer and hosted a variety of meetings and events primarily in the Activity center.

TKWA’s work focused on major improvements creating a new ‘front door to scouting’ as well as gathering and program spaces, and a broader range of camping opportunities.  During early planning, the design team worked closely with the Crossroads of America Council to develop a uniquely crafted Pattern Language to guide future design and construction of site and facility improvements.
