Camp Lewis consists of approx. 116 acres of tall trees, meadows, river shore, and developed camp sites five miles north of Battle Ground, Washington, on the Lewis River. Camp Lewis acquired in 1956 is the only camp in the Cascade Pacific Council that is in Washington State.
During the July and the first part of August, Camp Lewis is used as a Cub Scout Day Camp. Cub Scout day camp at Camp Lewis is an exciting program for young Cub Scouts. The camp features crafts, games, bb guns and archery, songs and skits...all the fun a Cub Scout has been looking forward to all year long! The rest of the year, the camp is open for reservation and use by Scouts.
Camp Lewis is one of the top Boy Scout Camps in the Council for short term camping. There are adirondacks in several campsites. There are several fire bowls, including the main camp fire bowl in the main field. There are several large fields for camping or Scout activities. Several large shelters make camping more bearable when the weather turns inclement. Snow is unlikely most of the winter at Camp Lewis which sits at about 200 ft. above sea leval.
Conservation and service projects are encouraged and can be suggested by the camp chairman. Reservations and tour permits are required.
Support Your Camp
Work Weekend: Each camp holds a work weekend during which volunteers get together to complete needed projects over one day or one weekend. A list of weekends and contact information for other properties can be found on the Work Weekend page.
Adopt-A-Project: Camp rangers keep lists of projects that a group, from Cub Scout packs to Boy Scout troops, or even families, Rotary or other service clubs, can 'adopt' based on their skill level and resources. A sample list of projects can be found on the Adopt-A-Project page, along with contact information for camp rangers so you can find a project suitable for your group.
Camp Host Program: Many camps have Camp Hosts most weekends to help visiting campers maximize their camping experience. Become a Camp Host to help packs and troops have great weekend camping trips.
