The camp features 9 campsites as well as 3 Pavilions on 85 acres of the former 200 acre Kesselring family farm. This new Scout Camp is bordered by two county parks, an elementary school and many suburban neighborhoods. The Kesselring family wished for thier family's legacy of caring for the earth to continue and take on new form as open recreation space. The property is in Kent County, just south of the City of Dover and north of the Town of Wyoming. The centerpiece of the property is an 8 acre manmade lake. The lake boasts a 1000 seat covered outdoor arena, boat dock, and an island. The property will also be home to the Scout Service Center serving the entire Delmarva Peninsula.
