D-bar-A Scout Ranch
Since 1950, D-bar-A-Scout Ranch has been providing quality scouting experiences for Scouts, Schools, and Churches from Southeast Michigan and around the Midwest. D-bar-A is located about an hour north of Detroit, MI. The ranch is comprised of over 1,700 acres of wilderness, 3 lakes, a herd of horses, cattle, and other livestock, 28 heated cabins, and 13 tent sites. Program facilities also include a 32 foot climbing tower, Lonesome Pines Boy Scout Shooting Center (Rifle, Shotgun, and Archery), Robert Morrison Cub Scout Shooting Center (BB Gun and Archery), Nature Center, Bouldering Wall, and 11 miles of hiking trails.
The ranch is operated by the Michigan Crossroads Council, BSA and employs 3 full time Rangers to handle all maintenance operations and one Camp Manager. However, maintaining 1700 acres is not possible without the support of volunteers from all over the United States who come back every year to provide upkeep of the camp. Additionally, the service provided by the members of the Noquet Lodge provide countless hours of service during their conclave weekends throughout the rest of the year.
The summer program at D-bar-A is endless. We offer several programs for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing Crews, and serve high school football camps and band camps.
