Dane G. Hansen Scout Reservation

What is Dane G. Hansen Scout Reservation?

In 1965, Dane G. Hansen purchased 270 acres of land adjoining Kirwin Reservoir near Kirwin, Kansas as a camp facility for the educational use of the Boy Scouts of America.

Camp Hansen is the setting for many events including Cub Adventure Camp, Scouts BSA Resident Camp, TOSS Camp, and NYLT. Programming includes over 35 Merit Badges, nine of which are Eagle Scout required. Trail to Eagle, the first year camper program, offers most of the requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class. Other programming includes kayaking, snorkeling, ATV, shooting sports, 3D archery, COPE, mountain boarding, mountain and BMX biking, as well as a variety of other camp programs.

Camp Hansen is a year round camp that welcomes all groups.
