It’s access=private with operator= or something. 

Scout Camps can be huge, with hundreds of people visiting year after year, they become local, sometimes regional, landmarks. 

And often times, even with smaller ones, the reason the people are going to the area is because there is a scout camp. 

The public map available for the California state park near my house clearly labels the Boy Scout camp in the middle of it (with “private” under the name, I think) because so many people are familiar with it’s location. It might also be a labeled feature on USGS topo maps, but I could be wrong. 

They are just private facilities, but they should be properly tagged as a camp site, as people drive long distances to take scouts there, so they should be searchable and routable.
