Welcome to the Adventure!

Family Camping is now available for single-families

What is a ‘single-family?’ For the purposes of our state and county health officials’ requirements, we can host single-families such as parents and children who live under one roof at home. They are already a ‘family cohort’ and can camp together as a family cohort so long as they stay together and do not mix with other family cohorts at the camp (at all) during their stay. To stay within our license requirements, we cannot permit these families to bring other persons, be they relatives, childrens’ friends, or any other persons. 

In this very unusual time, we have done our best to provide Scouting families in our Cascade Pacific Council time in the outdoors to be refreshed safely. We have never been able to offer a summer of such open access to explore and enjoy our camps for our whole Scouting family! Enjoy your stay as you hike, bike, play games, and explore camp.

While there won’t be any program areas or program equipment available (another health department limitation), there is plenty to do. You can plan family activities in-camp, or head out of camp for an afternoon or entire day at one of many local attractions. This is a family event; a welcome, two night, three day getaway to relax and enjoy the out-of-doors!

What to Expect: a “state park”-like experience for Scouting families only, with weekend/weekday options at Camps Meriwether, Clark, Baldwin, Pioneer.

Activities: While our standard summer program areas are not staffed or available, there are many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors on our properties. See featured activities, camp maps and details for each camp below.

Please note: all activities and availability are subject to change based on local, regional and state regulations. Pets will not be allowed on CPC property.

The Sloan Family’s Experience at Camp Clark:

From the time we arrived, meeting the staff masked up, arriving at our very secluded campsite to the beaches which were empty…the staff was friendly and helpful and we felt very safe. Appreciated the pre-screening questionnaire, and phone call the day before we left for camp to field any questions we might have had. Once we arrived, we noticed the private brand-new shower house and the flushing outhouses and stainless steel hand washing sinks at the campsite. WOW!!  We unexpectedly arrived to tablecloths on the tables, lidded garbage cans on each camp site and a small pile of firewood stocked and ready for campers. My boys favorite part may have been the candy at the Meriwether trading post but MY favorite part was the beach and seeing all the wildlife- a buck, rabbit, eagle, seal, and many other creatures in the tide pool area. The same weekend we were there at Clark, I had friends at Seaside and Cannon and those beaches were packed with people unlike the beaches in front of Clark/Meriwether. Grateful for that. Thank you and thank you to all the staff who made it possible to do family camping during this epidemic.
