Get Ready for Camp!


Ali and Darryl perusing a few of the featured camping items for May

When I was twelve, there was never a time I did not want to go to the mall with my mom. That was because ZCMI carried all the Scout Stuff a young Scout could dream of. Mom was busy with dresses or unmentionables and I was in kid heaven.


My First Backpack!

There were axes and knives, compasses and cook sets, but best of all there were backpacks. Ones that I could try on and imagine adventures ahead. To me it was sheer bliss and could not wait hit the trail.

Okay, so its not so state of the art any more, but it was pretty cool for me at twelve!

At today’s Scout Shops we have come a long, long way with camping gear and if you are not sure what to expect at Scout camp this summer,  then take a look at this:


Come learn about camping essentials. Our team of trained associates and volunteers will show you how to pick the right backpack, use a backpacking stove, get ready for a hike, and more.

Camp directors will be on hand to inform answer questions about what you and your child can expect while they are away enjoying the great programs that the Utah National Parks Council offers through their summer camps.

Build and launch new Estes Rockets at Orem Scout Shop and satisfy requirement three of the Space Exploration merit badge. Bring a friend and help them discover the excitement of Scouting.
