Camp Baldwin Reservations

Everything You've Ever Wanted at Scout Camp & More


Renowned as a high-adventure Scout camp, Baldwin delivers extreme outdoor programs to Scouts in the scenic Mt. Hood National Forest.  Located less than 20 miles west of Dufur, Oregon and protected among tall evergreens and plentiful wildlife, Camp Baldwin offers horseback riding, mountain biking, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, windsurfing, mountain boarding among other outdoor experiences. 

Camp Baldwin is the ideal destination for a snow adventure for winter campers. Snow camping and cross-country skiing are popular activities among troops as they enjoy thousands of acres of surrounding forest and nearby cross-country trail systems throughout the winter months.

Horsemanship Program

Sign-up for fun and exciting horse rides and venture into the Mt. Hood National Forest. Older Scouts can participate in the “Wrangler-in-Training” program called CL Advanced Wrangler to learn advanced horse skills and assist the wranglers throughout the week as they prepare horses for rides.  

Jamboree-Style Cooking

Scouts cook most of their meals in the campsite, which supports the camps’ long-standing focus on the Patrol Method. Using the Patrol Method, Scouts develop teamwork and leadership skills. Camp staff deliver raw food ingredients twice a day to ensure fresh, quality food for our Scouts.
