Boy Scout Camp setting for new National Geographic reality series


Camp Whitsett, a California Boy Scout camp, was used as a filming location for a National Geographic reality series Are You Tougher Than A Boy Scout? slated to debut on the cable channel in February. The series will pit middle-aged tough guys against Boy Scouts in outdoor challenges.

The series was filmed at Camp Whitsett last spring, according to the camp’s blog.

“Many of the competitions featured in the show, such as whitewater, canoeing, mountain biking, and high ropes are central parts of the Whitsett merit badge program that most scouts do when they come to camp,” the blog states.

The show was produced by Thom Beers, of Deadliest Catch and Ice Road Truckers fame.
