Classic Scout Tents: Tradition Reengineered

We’ve long taken pride in our 90-year history with boy scouts, from manufacturing the now-vintage Boy Scout Yucca Pack to working closely with local and regional scout camps and councils to perfect our canvas wall tent, the essential boy scout tent.

For decades Diamond Brand has outfitted scout high adventure and summer camps throughout the U.S.–from Camp Daniel Boone in North Carolina all the way to the renowned Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico–with time-tested, high-quality scout tents.

The Fundamental Canvas Wall Tent

Canvas tents are truly fundamental to the scout camping experience, so much so that nostalgia persists for most scouts long after exiting the program. We are committed to facilitating and carrying on the tradition.

Diamond Brand scout wall tents have been refined and tested in the harshest of elements. They come out-of-the-box ready to use, no seasoning required. And they are built to last, on average for five years, so scout camps and councils can dedicate resources to what matters most: developing an outdoor appreciation for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts alike.

Scout Canvas Wall Tent Line


An old school favorite, our Warhorse Canvas Wall Tents have met the needs of many generations of campers over the last 80 years. Roll-up sides and lace-up corners provide additional ventilation for hot summer days.


The Atlas Canvas Wall Tent combines the best of everything in a wall tent. With mesh screen windows AND roll-up sides, you have options for ventilation, and who doesn’t love options?


By adding windows, our Elementum Canvas Wall Tents provide fresh air to campers while still keeping them safe and dry. Four windows with durable mesh screens let the air in while keeping the critters out.

Dining Canopies

What’s a scout outing without some camp cooking? Keep food and campers dry under 10×20 ft of heavy duty 600 denier polyester. Metal hooks and adjustable webbing secure your scout dining canopy to the frame, so you can spend less time setting up and more time grubbing down. View Dining Canopies
