Patrol & Cohort Camping Now Open!

The Cascade Pacific Council is excited to offer some of our properties this summer to reduced-capacity, cohort-only camping!  Here are the important FAQs: 

What is "cohort camping?"

A group of up to 10 youth and 3 adults who camp together in a single campsite. Cohorts must stay socially distant from each other, sleep in their own tent, and act independently from any other cohort. 10 youth is a strict limit set by the state of Oregon. More than 10 youth will not be allowed at a campsite.

Can our entire troop camp if we reserve in multiple sites?

You are allowed 1 cohort per campsite.  Multiple cohorts from the same pack or troop will be placed apart and need to function entirely independently (including separate leaders, cooking equipment, etc.)

What transportation & arrival rules need to be followed?

Cohorts must arrive simultaneously for check-in, AND be transported individually.

Only those in the same household may ride in the same vehicle.

Who provides food?

 We are not allowed to provide food service, so please bring your own food and cooking gear.

How do I make a reservation? How does it work?

Here are the steps to take to make a reservation: 

  1. Complete this form noting your preferences.
    • Sessions run from Friday night – Sunday evening or Tuesday night – Thursday evening at Camps Meriwether, Clark, Baldwin, and Pioneer. Fourth of July and Labor Day Weekends are priced at a premium.
  2. Review the Cohort Camping Guide to make sure you understand the restrictions
  3. CPC will contact you within two business days to discuss options and make a reservation.
  4. You review the Cohort Adventure Guide you will receive before arrival.

Note: Reservations will be completed in the order received and are not complete until payment and confirmation are received.

State and local regulations may change at any time. Your team at the CPC is in constant contact with state and local legislators and health professional to ensure safety and compliance. 

What isn't allowed?

Prohibited items/activities: pets, swimming, firearms, trailers, RV’s, ATV’s, tobacco, drugs, alcohol, fireworks, chainsaws.

What do campsites include?

 All camps include: water, covered dining shelter with picnic table, nearby private or semi-private showers and outhouses (many are flushing!)

What are the accomodations?

Camp Baldwin: Bring your own tent, wooden platforms available, CAMPFIRES NOT ALLOWED

Camps Meriwether/Clark: Two person or larger Adirondack shelters available, or bring your own tent.

Camp Pioneer: Bring your own tent, wooden platforms available. Fires may be restricted.

What programs are available?

While each camp offers plenty to do, program areas and equipment will not be available as we are not allowed to offer camp programs. (e.g. waterfront, climbing, and Meriwether bike courses are closed.)

Minimal staff will be available for check-in, check-out, and cleaning.

We encourage you to explore all our camps this summer on your cohort adventure.

 

Where do we park?
One car (no trailers) may be parked at or near your campsite, though not at Camp Pioneer or a few sites at Camp Clark. Other vehicles may be parked at the parking lot.
