Camping in Thomas A. Edison Council
Click on any of the patches for more information

Please note that each of the three camps shown below, Camp Sakawawin, Camp Cowaw, Kitattiny Mountain Scout Reservation are ALL CLOSED. There is NO camping available at any of these three camps


Camp Sakawawin
Part of the Kittatinny Mountain Scout Reservation, located in Branchville, this camp was started in 1932.


Camp Cowaw
Opened by the Raritan Council in 1940, close to Camp Pahaquarra on the Delaware River. The camp was sold in 1970, after Middlesex and Raritan Councils merged to become the Thomas A. Edison Council. Six new troop tent sites were carved into the forest on the northeast side of Struble Road and were named Camp Cowaw, while the original camp retained the Sakawawin name and the entire operation became Kittatinny Mountain Scout Reservation.


Kittatinny Mountain Scout Reservation
Currently part of Central New Jersey Council and located in Branchville, NJ. This camp, opened as Camp Sakawawin, has expanded several times during its history.

Take some time to look at the Camp History and Camp Patchs by clicking on each of the links below the patchs. They are really great. If you have any of the missing patches, please think about helping us by contributing a scan, or a patch to be scanned. I don't think there is any other council with a similar set of pages.

The National Park Service has a nice website ( that mentions Boy Scout Camps along the Delware. When the page opens, use the search box to search for "Scout".
