Camp Castle Rock – Resident Camp

 Camp Castle Rock

Located a few miles from the city of Butte, Montana, Camp Castle Rock is a beautiful spot surrounded by lovely wooded hills. This delightful place for a mountain camp covers many timbered acres with several open places for camping, beautiful parks and a creek.

Thanks to busy beavers, a pond is situated directly across from the Lodge. Their work created an environment for birds and other creatures. It has been rumored moose can be spotted from time to time. The site is situated in the foothills of the Little Basin Valley.

A short walk from the camp toward the Continental Divide reveals views south into the Moose Creek country, southeast to the Upper Reservoir of the Butte Water company, and in the distance the Highland Mountains. Directly east is the Basin Creek Reservoir and Roosevelt Drive. Westward is the Divide Valley and further southwest looms the snowcapped Fleecer Mountain. To the north Butte is in plain view, twinkling in the evenings.

The site has a beautiful log lodge built in the 1920s surrounded by lofty and inspiring mountains.

Camp Castle Rock Master Plan –

The Long Range Property Plan (LRPP) was approved by Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming’s Board of Directors in 2010 and by the Delegates (Volunteers) at the 2011 annual meeting. As outlined in the LRPP, the Property Committee moved forward to develop a Master Plan for Camp Castle Rock in Butte. The Property Committee chose the consulting firm, Kaleidoscope Inc., to help develop the plan.

The final Conceptual Master Plan for Camp Castle Rock was recently received from Kaleidoscope, Inc. and approved by the Board of Directors.  The input from volunteers during the process was shared with Kaleidoscope and incorporated into the final plan as appropriate.

The Master Plan is comprehensive and will be implemented in phases. Council’s capacity to move forward on the phases as outline in the plan will be contingent, in part, upon on resources and budgetary considerations.
