Boy Scout Scott Visitor Center

Merit Award 2017
Boy Scout Scott Visitor Center Square

The Scott Visitor Center at the Boy Scout Summit Reserve in the mountains of West Virginia is the point of entry to the 10,000-acre high adventure camp—a veritable Mecca for Scouts. The architecture of the building itself, by Lake|Flato architects, reached the perfect balance between the rugged elegance of old lodges and camp buildings and something more contemporary feeling–expressed in one way by an undulating roofline supported by hand-hewn tree trunks.

When the Boy Scouts of America decided to build a five-story treehouse at its new 10,000+ acre high-adventure camp in West Virginia, the goal was to create a living model reaffirming its conservation heritage.
