CAMP LOCATION: Camp Scattergood is located 5 minutes East of downtown West Branch and 20 minutes away from both Iowa City and Tipton.

CAMP FACILITIES: Scattergood is located in rural West Branch, Iowa, in the greater Iowa City area. Our 126-acre campus consists of a 27 acre main campus and 26 acres of restored prairie. The farm includes 8 acres of certified organic vegetable gardens, a greenhouse, various barns, outbuildings, and pastures. Livestock include cows, sheep, pigs, and our donkey, Ned. We have a lovely pond as well as many trees and forests.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Scattergood is located on Scattergood Friends School's campus. Scattergood Friends School has been teaching high schoolers since 1890. Scattergood Friends School is a Quaker school that is founded in Quaker principles. At the heart of our camp is a set of Quaker values (or testimonies) that are commonly referred to as the SPICES. Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Stewardship serve as the backbone of our shared understanding of how to engage with each other and the land we share. We will also ask campers to begin and end each day with a short period of silent reflection to help us focus and prepare for or let go of the day.

Campers of all faith (or non-faith) backgrounds are welcome to join us and share in the fun and adventure of Camp Scattergood.

Our program is centered around nature and provides campers with a variety of activities to enjoy the outdoors. Campers will get to engage in imaginative play in our forest as they build villages out of the tools that the outdoors provides. They will also get to play games outside, swim each day, and spend time on our farm. Campers get to focus on their creative side through arts and crafts as well.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Camp Scattergood is located at Scattergood Friends School, a progressive and open-minded school for grades 6 through 12.
