Hamman Scout Camp
Located in one of the most naturally beautiful areas of Bandera, TX, the 965 acre Hamman Scout Camp, a gift from the Hamman Foundation in 1990, is a prime site to plan a Hill Country campout. This property offers older Boy Scout Troops and Venturing Crews an excellent backpacking adventure. Hamman Scout Camp is a primitive rustic location providing no amenities to units utilizing this area. Units will need to bring in all supplies for their activities including water. Ranger or caretaker support is not available at this camp. You will gain access to the property through a combination lock on the entrance gate. The code will be emailed to you the week of your activity.
