Camp Bob Hardin suffered significant damage to roads, buildings, and systems during a catastrophic flood event in May 2018. Engineers have determined that major repairs are needed to provide a safe environment for children and adults to experience the adventure of Scouting. Summer camp program for the 2018 and 2019 seasons has been cancelled to allow time for repairs. A steering committee has been formed to work with construction experts to provide advice and guidance for work at Camp Bob Hardin.
The Palmetto Council board of directors has closed the property to all events until such time as operating permits have been approved for reopening the camp. Packs and Troops should work closely with the Council Camping Committee to find alternative sites for summer camp and other program activities for the immediate future.
