Burnham Woods is the location of the Fort Smith Regional Office as well as a number of facilities for troop and council activities. It is located in the River Valley of Arkansas between the Ouachita Mountains in the south and the Boston and Ozark Mountains of the north and a gateway city to the Ozarks.

There are two pavilions on the property with picnic tables, two large open fields, a small forested area with trails and a creek, a small pond and the Nature Center.

Rental Pricing

Service Unit camp outs are a great way to get everyone out in the woods, build a sense of community and team among the troops in your area, encourage those volunteers who don’t quite feel confident enough to take a troop of girls alone, and – most important - have some major fun.  To encourage Service Units to camp on Diamonds properties this year, we are offering an all-camp rate of half the normal all-camp price.
