About Camp Grimes

Camp Grimes, one of North Carolina's finest Scout summer camps, is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Camp Grimes has been part of the Mecklenburg Scout Reservatio (MSR)n since 1976 and is owned and operated by the Mecklenburg County Council, Boy Scouts of America, Charlotte NC.

Camp Grimes is home to Lake Calhoun, recently tagged as a Bass Trophy Lake by the NC Wildlife Resource Commission, and to 25 miles of ATV trails! The McNaughton Heart of Camp building, which houses our dining hall, trading post, the Pace Learning Center (aka Scoutmasters’ Lounge) and an indoor climbing wall, continues to be the center piece of Camp Grimes.

With more than 60 different merit badge offerings, a Cowboy Action shooting range, 100-acre Lake Calhoun, a Kona Ice Truck, Friday night concert and a veteran staff that cares about your Scouts, Camp Grimes is the place to go this summer!

Camp Grimes and (MSR) also offer weekend camping, facility and program reservations. The fun never ends at Camp Grimes! Look around our website and see why you GottaGoToGrimes!
