A kitchen will be set up for you, so all you have to do is fill in the meal duties roster, execute the directions and recipes, wash your hands and get ready to eat!
2. GET 10% OFF!
Also starting 2018! Troops and crews will receive a 10% discount when attending summer camp at an Oregon Trail Council camp for consecutive years. Just one way we are thanking our Scouts and Scouters for their support of our great programs!
At Camp Melakwa, high in the heart of the Cascades, Scouts and Scouters alike find the pinnacle of what Scouting offers. We help your troop focus on the patrol method, key skills, rank advancement and high-country wilderness adventure.
The program at Camp Melakwa is tailored to promoting adventure. Our structured morning merit badge sessions give way to afternoons of exploration. Enjoy open archery, rifle, and shotgun ranges, as well as open areas in waterfront, nature, and Scoutcraft. The call of the mountain and endless trails will be a constant allure.
