AT 10,400 FEET, Camp Steiner is the highest-elevated Boy Scout camp in the country. The elevation is so high that when summer


camp staff arrives, there’s still snow on the ground. An hour and a half east of Salt Lake City, Camp Steiner also stands out because there’s no electricity. That means no dining hall or commissary, so each troop brings its own food and cooks its own meals. Baden-Powell would have approved.


64 SCOUTING ¿ SEPTEMBER•OCTOBER 2014


What it lacks in modern-day comforts, it


more than makes up for in experiences Scouts can’t get anywhere else, such as: fA campfire bowl with a view across the lake to two 13,000-foot peaks.


fThe chillingly told tale of a man named Hyrum, who in the early 1950s lost an arm and part of his face in an accident while building a tunnel near the camp. Some staffers believe Hyrum still haunts Camp Steiner, and there’s a self-


guided Hyrum Hike named for him.


fClimbing opportunities at the aptly named Picturesque Wall (seen above) for Scouts working on the Climbing merit badge or those just wanting to go climbing or rappelling on the mountain. ¿ – Bryan Wendell
