Gerber offers many different year-round programs and are currently developing even more. We rent a large variety of our building out for your scouting events. More information are detailed below in the Year Round Programs and Services. If their is a program you would like to see offered reach out to the Reservation Director; we are always welcome to new ideas.

In recent years, Gerber Scout Reservation attendance has swelled from 900 in 1997 to over 2,500 in 2012. Much of this increase can be attributed to the 1998 initiation of the Cub Scout and Webelos Adventureland, a section of the camp dedicated to Cub Scouts. Gerber currently has the capacity to accommodate 425 Boy Scouts, 200 Cub Scouts  each week or session.

Activities offered at the camp include the Waterfront, Honor Ground, Climbing Tower/COPE, Scoutcraft, Handicraft, Environmental Resource Center, Archery, and Shooting Sports. Recently, a air-conditioned leaders’ lounge was added to allow adults to view their Scouts’ MB progress and check emails The new dining hall, named the Ralph K. Merrill Centennial Dining Hall, was completed in time for the 2010 summer camp season. Centennial Dining Lodge boasts state of the art facilities, a capacity of over 700, and a safe place to take shelter.
