Directions: (only 10-12 minutes from Hughes Elementary)
|Starting from the Hughes Elementary School, go east on Higby for 4.3 miles.|
|Turn left onto Albany. There will be a firehouse at the corner. |
|Take the first right off Albany.|
|When the road 'T's, turn right onto Brockway, then left onto Gates. |
|Stay to the right when the road forks. You are almost there. |
|Watch for a recessed entrance to Ballou on your right after going down a hill.|
|Turn in, and follow to the end parking area. |
Be prepared for a narrow un-kept road. :-)

Click here, or on the map on the
right, to download a wonderful, detailed contour map of Camp Ballou.
I scanned it in (from a copy I purchased at the scout store) at 150 DPI,
so the resolution is pretty good. Feel free to download it to your
system, then print it out from your favorite graphics program. The
