Why should YOU come to Lawton this summer?
Come and join the Llama family at Camp Lawton. Every Scout dreams of fun and adventure at summer camp. Since 1921 Camp Lawton has been bringing these dreams to life.
The mighty views of Tucson provide the dramatic backdrop for this full service camp. The camp includes a trading post, a .22 rifle range (where we use air rifles per Forest Service Regulations), an archery range, photography, scoutcraft, handicraft and an ecology study center.
Far more important to a Scout than these wonderful facilities are the outstanding young men and women of the Lawton staff. The staff is the kind of older Scout that each camper will look up to and want to be like. They are trained at National Camp School to make every Scout feel special and give him a great camping experience.

Frederick Burnham was a “scout” for the U.S. Calvary. He Fought Apaches in Arizona and throughout the Southwest. He was sent to England at the request of at a request to the U.S. Government when the British Government requested assistance in needing a “scout” and assisting them in fighting the Matabee natives in Africa. Here he met Baden Powell, where he taught Powell the tricks of “scouting, tracking and other life wilderness skills” Baden Powell gave all the credit to Burnham in setting up the International Scouting Movement and the possibilities of “Field” craft to the scouting movement. The original Boy Scout hat is a version of the cowboy hat of the 1880’s. The scout neckerchief is from Burnham and a reflection of the cowboy bandana. The story goes on, Take time to find and read the book “Scouting on Two Continents”. A fabulous book in which arguments could be made – Scouting started in Arizona and Burnham is the “Father” of the Founder of Scouting Sir Robert Baden Powell.
