. Camp Bromelsick

Bromelsick Scout Farm

Located at 682 North 1400 Road, if you Google the location Lecompton may come up as the city but Lawrence, KS is the correct city.
160 Acres of Fun! The Camp is directly north of Clinton State Park. We have two gated entrances to the property. The first gate is on top of the hill as you head west on N 1400 Rd. The second gate is close to the bottom of the hill as you head further west.
The area on top of the hill is heavily wooded with a meadow (Laura Kriz Meadow) in the middle and another meadow ( Traul Meadow) on the East side. The Kriz Meadow has a water spigot Pit Toilet and new 25 x40 Shelter (Kriz). A fire place will be installed this year. This area has an abundance of wood and is a great place for those who want to cook all of their meals over an open fire or get out of the cold winter winds. We encourage units to cut up the dead wood for fires. There is more than enough fallen wood for everyone. The north end of the Kriz Meadow has a large flag pole for flag ceremonies.
The area accessed by the bottom gate includes the Wertz lake, a large shelter house, two pit toilets, a storage barn, and water spigots located in four different locations. The Tripp Anderson Trail of Honor entrance is located just inside the lower gate. We have a large flag pole and area where units can hold flag ceremonies.

We have many areas on the property that are great for back packing. This is a Scouting paradise. We can accommodate many troops at one time. We have two shelters and with 160 acres troops can spread out and obtain a sense of seclusion if that is your preference.

The Bromelsick property was purchased March 1, 1961. The first camporee occured in April of 1961. Those scouts saw two inches of snow. We dedicated the Laura Kriz Meadow on November 5, 2016 under perfect skies and an Eagle flyover.
