Camp Whitsett

While attending BSA Camp Whitsett, campers can join Sierra South for an exciting menu of rafting trips.

Younger scouts or those not working toward a merit badge can enjoy our Camp Whitsett Lickety Split or Camp Whitsett Lickety Blaster raft trips. Those wanting to earn their whitewater merit badge should book the Camp Whitsett Merit Badge Combo. These trips include special discounts for Camp Whitsett campers only. Bus transportation is available for an additional charge.

Sierra South’s co-owner Tom Moore (an Eagle Scout) designed the Camp Whitsett Whitewater Merit Badge program more than 30 years ago. It is unique to the Kern River and has been approved in cooperation with the Great Western Council of Boy Scouts of America. Call 800-457-2082 for more information.
