Camp Meriwether/Clark Reservation is the earliest council owned camp, and was acquired in 1926. Located on the Oregon coast south of Cape Lookout with beautiful beach and cove. The Camp is named in honor of the Meriwether Lewis and William Clark Expedition and its wintering at Ft. Clatsop near the Columbia River, north of the Meriwether-Clark Scout reservation.
Adventure Cove at Camp Clark is the overnight camping opportunity for Webelos (boys who will attend the 4th and 5th grade during the fall) in the Cascade Pacific Council.
Adventure Cove is a resident camp, which means that the boys and their leaders stay at camp for the whole week. Scouts and leaders stay in campsites, sleeping in separate, large, framed two-man tents (provided). Everyone eats together in the camp dining hall, family style, and all participate in a week-long program of Scouting fun and adventure. A new shower-house was built and opened for summer 2006. This is a great new addition to camp.
Program highlights have included B.B. gun and archery ranges, field sports, nature study, ocean study, science, showmanship, campfires, crafts, woodworking and basic skill development. Webelos also hike to Meriwether, a Boy Scout camp, to see what it has to offer them for future camping experiences. In addition to the regular program areas the Webelos are able to choose and sign up for 5 of 10 elective stations to customize their experience (these are a Webelos version of Boy Scout merit badges) and that will help Webelos make a positive transition into Boy Scouting. Part of the mission for Adventure Cove is that each Webelos den attending leaves a stronger, better team; one step closer to the Arrow of Light and excited about their future as Boy Scouts.
Adventure Cove is located at Camp Clark . It is owned and operated by the Cascade Pacific Council, BSA, and is part of the Meriwether/Clark Scout reservation. The 780 acre Meriwether/Clark Scout reservation is on the Oregon coast at the base of Cape Lookout , twenty miles south of Tillamook. It takes approx. 2 hours to drive from Portland .
Adventure Cove is right on the beach! Webelos and their leaders can take advantage of playing in the sand, examining sea-life in the local marine gardens, and enjoying breathtaking views of the ocean from the dining hall or campsites along the bluff.
