Utah National Parks Council Grateful for Valiant Efforts of Firefighters to Protect Thunder Ridge Scout Camp

Utah National Parks Council, BSA Press Release


The Utah National Parks Council, BSA is grateful for the valiant efforts of firefighters to protect Thunder Ridge Scout Camp from the wildfire that started Saturday near Brian Head, UT.  There were no Scouts at the camp when the evacuation notice was in put in effect, and all camp staff members are safe.

We regret the impact the wildfire could have on one our most beautiful camping properties, and recognize the tremendous work fire crews and authorities have given to make camp operations possible in the future. While expected to be minimal, we are unable to assess the full extent of damages to the property at this time.  

The safety of the Scouts, leaders, and camp staff are of the utmost importance to us. We are currently working on relocating, or rescheduling units signed up for upcoming weeks at Thunder Ridge Scout Camp. Leaders should watch for an email or call from the camp director to make arraignments.

Updates on the situation will be posted on the Thunder Ridge Scout Camp Facebook page.
