By following our mission, the Northeast Iowa Council strives to make Camp Klaus a great experience for Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts of all ages. Our acclaimed staff offers an exciting and educational program, as well as merit badges and rank advancement. Programs of various lengths are offered for Cub Scouts ranging from a day out with mom and dad, or a full weekend of camping, while Boy Scouts come for a week long adventure.

Camp C.S. Klaus is situated on a 200 acre wooded valley, located near Colesburg, Iowa. The camp is home to a beautiful newly dredged lake, 40 foot climbing tower, newly constructed COPE course, and trails for all ability levels. With its seven camp sites, platform tents, private showers, dining hall, Camp Klaus provides a comfortable yet adventurous camping experience of both the youth and adults we serve.
