A 312 acre camp on the bank of the Platte River near Fremont, Nebraska. These facilities are available for rental by Scout and non-Scout groups.
Camp Eagle, which comprises the eastern half of the Covered Wagon Scout Ranch, is located approximately three miles northeast of Cedar Bluffs, Nebraska. It consists of 312 acres of woods, meadows and river bottomland. The camp has a variety of buildings, Pentzien Lodge, an air-conditioned "A-frame" dining hall which can seat 200; the Chief's Wickiup, an administrative center with meeting and rest rooms and sleeping quarters for two; Millard Lodge, a general purpose building with meeting rooms, restrooms, showers, bunks for 50 and a kitchen.
Eagle also has four air-conditioned cabins, each with a kitchen, bathroom and bunks for 16 people. Three of the cabins are wheelchair accessible. The camp also has a heated swimming pool, a 5-acre lake for boating and fishing, a campfire stage, picnic shelter and BB and archery ranges. Campers can also stay in any of twelve primitive campsites. For more information on rental of this camp, see our camp facilities reservation form.
Originally opened by Mid-America Council in 1963, Camp Eagle was a Boy Scout Resident Camp. However, it has evolved into the Council's primary Cub outdoor summer program facility. Cub programs offered at Eagle include Cub Scout Resident Camps (one and one-half days and two nights) and Fun with Son camps (one day with optional overnight camping). On weekdays, during the summer, Camp Eagle is used by the Nebraska Easter Seals.
