Summer Camp

We still have room at both camps for more troops or packs to come group camping. It's not too late, especially if you take the catering option - just collect together some kids and we'll handle the rest! . Camp Jackson Dodds also has room left in individual camping. Call soon though as kids often ask to return for a second or third week!


New Year’s and March Break Camps

As already advertised, we will be hosting New Year’s and March Break Camps to coincide with the school holidays.  The New Year’s camp will take place from December 29 - January 2 and the March Break camp from March 2-6.  The camps are open to all youth aged 8-13 and we offer a fully animated program consisting of crafts, games, survival, and a lot of outdoor winter fun.  Transport from Dorval is provided for the March Break Camp and will be considered if there is sufficient demand for the New Year’s Camp.  The cost for the 5-day, 4-night camp is $290 for Scouts Canada members and $370 for non-members.  These camps both qualify for receipts for income tax purposes.


Please call 1-866-438-4096 or email for more details.


Camp Work Day

Please join us for Work Day and help prepare the camps for the winter. Lunch and supper will be provided. Meet at 9 a.m. in the Tamaracouta dining hall for your job assignments. A list of projects is attached, along with the skill sets, tools and equipment for each. Please choose a project matching your team's skills and let the camp know as soon as possible. Let us know a) your chosen project b) whether you will be bringing all the tools required or will need camp to supply and c) how many people will be coming with you. Many, many thanks to all for your participation in these work days - the camps rely on the efforts of dedicated volunteers such as you! Date TBA

Welcome to Camp Tamaracouta!

Tamaracouta Scout Reserve is the Oldest Continuously Running Scout Camp in Canada, proudly hosting thousands of Scouting members from around the globe every year. The camp is now situated on 1000 acres of pristine woodlands, offering year-round accommodations and activities. Tamaracouta is located in the heart of the lower Laurentians, approximately 1 hour North of downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada.


The name Tamaracouta was derived by two unique words.

  • TAMARA comes from the tamarack tree of which there were an unusually large quantity in 1912, in spite of a blight which destroyed most of the tamaracks in Quebec in the early 1900’s
  • COUTA comes from the native word meaning body of water.
Contrary to popular belief, Tamaracouta did not originate from the name of an Indian Tribe.


Scouts Canada, the country's leading youth organization, offers challenging programs for boys, girls and youth age 5-26 in thousands of individual groups in most cities and towns across Canada.
