- Buffalo Trail Scout Ranch (BTSR)
The mission of the Buffalo Trail Council is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
Today’s Youth. Tomorrow’s Leaders.
Established in 1947, the Buffalo Trail Council of the Boy Scouts of America serves, on average, more than 3,000 youth annually across 18 West Texas counties.
For almost a century, Scouting has instilled in young men the values and knowledge that they will need to become leaders in their communities and country. On the front lines, making this happen, is our Executive Board and Council Leadership.
In the outdoors, youth have opportunities to acquire skills that make them more self-reliant. They can explore canoe and hiking trails and complete challenges they first thought were beyond their ability. Attributes of good character become part of a youth as they learn to cooperate to meet outdoor challenges that may include extreme weather, difficult trails and portages, and dealing with nature’s unexpected circumstances.
The Buffalo Trail Council is comprised of five Districts: Big Bend, Chaparral, Comanche Trails, Lone Star, and Scout Reach.
Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Davis Mountains in West Texas, this 9,000-acre ranch is one of America’s premier High-Adventure council camps. The camp is nationally recognized and fully accredited by the Boy Scouts of America. In operation since 1947, this beautiful ranch has met the needs of Scouts, Scouters, and their families for 60 years.
