Tamaracouta Scout Reserve prides itself on being among the oldest continually-operating Scout camps in the world, having operated each summer since 1911. TSR is open year-round and has an extensive summer program. Groups cook their own meals and supply their camping equipment. Food and camping supplies not included in program fees. There is no charge for Scouters but participation in program animation is expected. There is also a composite program for individual Scouts or patrols without their own troops or Scouters. Camping equipment, including tents, and food is provided. A limited number of indoor accommodation is available for Scouting families. A meal plan is available.

TSR is also the new site of the Camp Jackson Dodds Wolf Cub camp program, which was formerly operated at the now-sold Camp Jackson Dodds property.

On November 5, 2018, it was revealed that the camp would be closed on December 1 and all future bookings cancelled. Scouts Canada said, "we have decided to temporarily close the property, effective December 1st, while we complete a full assessment". There was no reason given for why the camp must be closed during the assessment nor a commitment to ever re-open the property. Until this closure, TSR was among the oldest continuously-operating Scout camps in the world. Nearly a year later, Scouts protested the closing of their camp.
