Camp Tonkawa is nestled under huge Oak trees in southern Taylor County, Texas. Located about 12 miles south-southwest of Abilene and about 4 miles west of Buffalo Gap, the camp is on FM 89 next to the Abilene State Park.

It is also used by many Non-Scouting groups throughout the year. 4-H, YWCA, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Hunter Safety Education, and other groups make use of our facilities. Our “Day in the Woods” program has hosted many of the local Elementary Schools and other groups for a day of excitement, learning, and fun as young people learn skills, play games, learn about nature, and take part in other activities.

Camp Tonkawa is a perfect setting for Cub Scouting events, such as Haunted Forest, Cub Scout Day Camp, and Family Camp. These activities are designed for young Scouts to spend time outdoors, having fun as they learn.

Boy Scout Summer Camp offers an outstanding merit badge program designed to offer quality teaching while helping the scout achieve his Scouting goals.

Camp Tonkawa is a camp where the Spirit of Scouting is still strong. Songs, campfires, fellowship, and outdoor adventures make it an excellent Scouting adventure for Scouts of all ages.
