Cub Scouts

Scouts Camping is a great way to explore leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Camping gives an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun.

Day trips for schools are a fantastic way to get your students out of the classroom and enhance their learning, while still remaining flexible and affordable.

Ascend takes great pride in maintaining a neutral position on all fronts. As a non-denominational camp retreat, we do not discriminate against any religious beliefs or affiliations. In addition, our position on political, ethical, cultural, or educational philosophies remains neutral. As a result, you can have peace of mind knowing that when you choose Ascend as your venue of choice, your group will not experience any prejudice or judgmental overtones from our staff or other guests. However, we reserve the right to exclude or not accept groups that do not adhere to our restrictions. Those that are, to name a few: any groups that wish to consume alcohol or controlled substances and firearms, concealed or otherwise, fall into our restricted category. We do not wish to have any negative impacts on our guests, clients, or our staff.
