Camp Prairie Schooner

Located between Lee's Summit and Independence, MO, Camp Prairie Schooner sits high on the bluffs of the Little Blue River and is located about 15 miles south east of downtown Kansas City. With 176 wooded acres, Prairie Schooner feels like wilderness in the heart of the metropolitan area. Prairie Schooner features a dining hall, five permatent units, four buildings for troop use, a 40-foot rappel tower, archery range, swimming pool, zipline, hiking, orienteering, letterboxing, geocaching, an amphitheater and an outdoor classroom.

The dining hall at Prairie Schooner seats about 200. Owl's Nest is a small cabin with a wrap around porch and has a kitchen, stone fireplace, bathroom, and shower and laundry facilities. Dewitt Lodge also has a shower and bathroom, fireplace, and kitchen. Two newly built troop houses situated in the meadow of Neal Lodge have kitchens, indoor showers and restrooms, and wireless internet access. All indoor facilities have mattresses, and all outdoor sites except for primitive sites have cots, mattresses, latrines, and open-air showers.

This wooded site has creeks, hills, and the Dr. Sam Wilson nature trail which circles the property. You'll never know you're still in the city!
