Camp BEL is named after the late Bert Elgin Langford who donated the property to Scouting "for the kids of Dorchester". The camp is about half wooded and half open fields. It backs onto the Thames River, which is suitable for canoeing. There is a rappelling tower, a 500' tree top zipline, multiple low ziplines, two obstacle courses, many craft stations, and first aid trailer. There are three clearings near the Thames River that can accommodate about 75 campers each.

The camp has one lodge with two halls, Langford Hall and the Grand Howl Hall. There are six bunk rooms for six people each, washrooms, showers, and a complete kitchen.

Four camporees are held annually at the camp: Dorchester International Brotherhood Camp (DIBC), Dorchester International Cubboree Camp (DICC), Genesis Venturee, and Dorchester Friendship Camp (DFC).
