Camp Haynes

Camp Haynes is a true wilderness camp designed for the more rugged Scout. Haynes Scout Camp is located east of Silverton, Texas, at the foot of a canyon. The camp was acquired in August of 1941.  This camp was given by the late John Haynes in memory of his mother. It included 80 acres of land and was located 10 miles east and a little north of Silverton, Texas. Weekend Camping at Haynes Scout Camp is ideal. The wilderness setting is unspoiled with permanent strucutures. Campers need to bring their own water supply. The entry road  is extremely rough and sometimes will require Scouts to hike in to camp. 

The entrance is south of Texas Highway 256 and just east of FM 2167.

This land was donated to the South Plains Council, BSA and the Caprock Council of  the Girl Scouts. Let us use it well and protect
its beauty.

Camp is closed during the fall hunting season. Although hunting is not allowed on Camp, we close camp for safety.

Just east of Camp Haynes is Caprock Canyons State Park. Reservations 1-512-389-8900. Park Headquarters 1-806-455-1492
