Blue skies and warm winds on the eastern slope of Mt. Hood attract thousands of Scouts to this pine forested camp each year. The most unique and special feature of Camp Baldwin is the string of horses available for the Horsemanship merit badge and trail rides. The Friday evening barbecue followed by Baldwin’s American Heritage campfire, is the highlight of a Scout’s summer camp week.

Lake Hanel offers trout fishing as well as a complete aquatics program. The Rock Climbing merit badge program is offered to third year campers.

Meals are served “Jamboree” style. The camp provides the food and menus as well as chef tool and cooking kit, dutch oven and griddle for each patrol. The Scouts cook all but three meals in the campsite. Patrols become stronger because of this experience, especially valuable for newer Scouts.

Baldwin emphasizes outdoor activities that are packed, and fun for everyone. During the summer, a large herd of sixty horses fill the corral, and provide daily rides and overnight trips. While our horses are the center of attention at camp, we also provide a daring rock climbing program which will take you from novice to full fledged cliffhanger in a week. We also sport a mountain biking area, which offers day and overnight rides in the forest areas surrounding camp. The area also features the new mountain boarding program. Baldwin also has a lake for swimming, boating, canoeing, and fishing. Some of our other areas include nature, campcraft, handicraft, and the rifle and archery ranges.

Geranium Orders 2014!

It’s that time of year again where you can earn some money for your troop account and sell Geraniums!    The Geraniums the troop sells are grown locally from Skagit Valley and grow really well down here in Olympia.  People end up buying them year after year.

The Geraniums will be ready to be picked up on April 4th.  So get busy and get your orders now.  Plan on turning in your orders the week of March 27th.  I’ve attached an order form you can use to help in your selling.

Scout Sunday – February 2, 2014

DSCF3148
scoutsunday2013 The Boy Scouts of America annually celebrates its founding on February 8, 1910, based on the program started by Lord Baden Powell in England on August 1, 1907. Scout Sunday was added to the Scout celebration in the middle 1940s. Scout Sunday is always the Sunday preceding February 8th, unless the 8th is a Sunday, in which case the 8th would be Scout Sunday. Once again, we have a cool patch for all the Scouts that attend. We will be attending the 11 a.m. service at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church on February 2, 2014.   We can pick up carpoolers at 10:15 a.m. at the old Fire Station. We will be going out for lunch afterwards. If you plan on going, please RSVP on the right.
