Camp Don Harrington

This camp, named for its donor, was first opened in 1945. This 800 + acre property is located in the west section of the Palo Duro Canyon in the Texas Panhandle just 10 miles south of Amarillo on south Washington Street (FM 1541). It is on the Prairie Dog Fork of the Red River.

The camp has 12 campsites. The camp is open year-round for weekend camping. Other camp features include a full dining hall and kitchen, large heated swimming pool, archery and rifle ranges, and all the Scouting skills in nature, Scoutcraft, and handicrafts. The large lake offers canoeing, rowing, and excellent fishing.

Another exciting feature is the Ropes challenge course including low and high elements. A popular attraction is the "swinging bridge" over the lake. A four element Cub world was recently added to the camp including a tepee, a fort, a castle, and pirate ship. Map of Camp Don Harrington. Map to Camp Don.

This camp meets all BSA national camp facility standards.


Health Record Requirement
Each Boy Scout and leader attending Camp Don Harrington must have an up-to-date health exam conducted by a physician within twelve (12) months prior to camp. Your inoculation record is needed, as is the parent's and Scout's signature. Please make a copy because the physical form will not be returned.

The name of the camper's parents' insurance carrier and their insurance policy identification number must be listed on the camper's medical application. If they (parents) do not have medical insurance, other arrangements must be made by the unit with which the Scout is attending camp.Health forms are available at the Scout office or on the FORMS PAGE.

Leadership in Camps
It is the policy of the Boy Scouts of America that at least two adults, one of whom must be 21 years or older, are required for all trips or outings. Camp leaders must be registered members of the Boy Scouts of America and at least 21 years of age. Assistant camp leaders must be at least 18 years of age. The chartered institution must approve all camp leadership, male or female.

Consistent with the policy of the BSA, separate housing must be provided for all female leadership. While facilities in camp remain the same, scheduling is designed to assure the privacy of both male and female leadership. Special consideration is given to the maturity of leadership. Prudent judgment must be exercised to assure that proper role models are provided for our young people.If you would like more information about our Camp please contact our Camping Department at Golden Spread Council Office
