About the Camp

Boy Scout Logos Brorein-outlines.epsCentrally located in the Hillsborough County community of Odessa, Camp Brorein is the Council’s oldest camping facility. Located at 16901 Boy Scout Rd., Odessa 33556, this camp has been dedicated to the advancement of Scouting from its founding in 1923. The camp has a long, rich history of serving Scouts and youth in the surrounding area.

Situated on more than 80 acres of land, surrounded by two lakes and blessed by the shade of many Live Oak trees, Camp Brorein provides the ideal camping experience for all. With newly-built bouldering, climbing and rappelling walls, the Camp also has an indoor dining area, classroom and training space, new canoes and kayaks, plus a shooting sports range for BBs, slingshots and archery. There’s even a playground for younger children to explore.

The waterfront includes both canoes and kayaks, which can be launched from the pier on Lake Moon. Fishing is also available in our lakes. The property includes many open areas for arts, crafts and games. There is ample room to just run and play. Other amenities include permanent tents in some campsites, a new bathhouse facility, stage area with flag pole, a fire ring and an open air chapel.
