Welcome to My Camp Grimes, Mecklenburg County Council's online summer camp information site. One of North Carolina's finest Boy Scout Camps, Camp Grimes is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Camp Grimes is part of the Mecklenburg Scout Reservation 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.
