The Kansas City Chapter is bringing in the Madness this year which will be located near Osceola, Missouri at the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation. This gorgeous 4,200-acre reservation is home to the Osage Wilderness trail consisting of 12.5 miles of rugged Ozark woodlands. The reservation has access to the Harry S. Truman Reservoir with available canoe rentals. It is a mixture of hard wood forests, bluffs, caves, and managed prairies being restored through burning. This camp has an assemblage of Native American culture, winsomeness, and history. It was named after former Kansas City, Missouri mayor and Boy Scout council executive H. Roe Bartle.

We will be staying at the Piercing Arrow campground with fully furnished luxurious cabins, canvas perma-tents with cots and outlets available upon request, a dining lodge with full kitchen and refrigeration, and an arena style fire pit. These extravagant cabins are no joke! For a small extra fee of $10/person you can reserve space in one of these shared cabins. Each cabin includes a kitchen with dining table, mini-fridge and microwave, a living room with a couch, a bathroom with shower, and two bedrooms with two to three beds each. Don’t forget your blankets and pillows. The cabins are about a mile walk to the dining lodge, or a quick drive down the road. Each cabin will fit five to six people. First come first serve basis, so reserve your cabin today! Feel free to set up your tent anywhere on the campground. If you don’t feel like bringing your tent, they have multiple platforms that come equipped with canvas tents, cots, outlets, and access to a shower house. Just let us know how many cots and tents you will need, and the scout master will provide! RV’s and campers are allowed but there are no hook-ups (power, water, sewer).
