Horace A. Moses Scout Reservation

310 Birch Hill Rd, Russell, MA 01071


The Horace A. Moses Scout Reservation is located on more than 1,295 acres of land surrounding Russell Pond in the foothills of the Berkshires.

The Moses Scout Reservation is home to Scouts BSA and Cub Scout Resident Camps, as well as Cub Scout Day Camp, as part of the Western Massachusetts Council.  To find out more about each camp, click on the links to the right.

The camp is also available for weekend camping by Scouting units during much of the school year. Cabins, shelters, and tents are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Shooting Sports, Aquatics, COPE and Climbing, and ATV activities are not allowed unless the programs are provided by WMC staff. If you would like to have one of these activities, we will have to put in a request to the respective committees. Please allow a 2-3 week lead time so that we may find and schedule the staff. If you are interested in submitting a request, please contact Greg Williams at the Council Service Center  

Money-saving opportunities! Any Unit renting camp facilities who participate in a camp service project, pre-approved and verified by a Ranger or Campmaster, will receive a 25% credit toward their next rental. Tenting units will receive a full credit.

Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present; we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit. The CDC advises that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from Coronavirus. Guests should evaluate their own risk in determining whether to attend. People who show no symptoms can spread Coronavirus if they are infected, any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to Coronavirus. By coming to the camp, you acknowledge and agree that you assume these inherent risks associated with attendance.
