Adopt A Project

Adopting a Project is a great opportunity to help improve your camps!

Many troops have asked how they can help maintain our properties. The projects have met the volunteer hour requirements for advancement, built skills and created a renewed sense of ownership and enthusiasm within the troop. The projects provided an opportunity for additional involvement among adults.

Maintaining excellent facilities for Scouts and leaders is a top priority for Cascade Pacific Council. Often, though, there are more projects that need to be completed than time and financial resources allow.

Council camps rely on volunteer supported work days and weekends to make camps better for all users. Packs and troops can also take on service projects at any council camp, or help the Adopt-a-Camp project program.  A few current projects are listed below:

List updated February 26,2014

 

 
Camp Project Comments
Portland Service Center Weeding and pruning General spring clean up around the Portland office. This is a good project for younger Scouts or Webelos. This could be split up into two projects.
     
Portland Service Center Spreading bark Will need to be scheduled after weeding and pruning project
     
Portland Service Center Patio area spruce up Basic clean up, pruning of the Portland office patio area.
     
Scouters Mountain Clearing Brush Groups should bring gloves, pruners, chainsaws, rakes and possibly a chipper. The ranger has some tools but whatever your group could bring would help.
     
Scouters Mountain General Cleaning Help Not that thousands of visiting kids are tough to keep up with, but who couldn't use the help? The dining hall, shower house, box cars and such could alway use some touch up.  Windows, wiping walls, bunk mattresses, floors or shopvacing the dust would all make a diference!
     
Scouters Mountain Painting Some sign touch up and a fresh coat on the gates would make things look good.
     
Scouters Mountain Remodel of Caboose We would like to utilize the caboose for more then something to look at. I have no set ideas for what to do with it so bring me your ideas (ie: Adult lounge, adult or youth sleeping area) This is a non funded project adoptive group would need to secure materials by donation or other means.
     
Camp Cooper Nature trail work. We need people willing to cut trail, pull, move and remove plants. No financial outlay required. Tools provided. One eight-hour work day, from 8 to 30 scouts.
     
Camp Cooper Exterior Building Brush Clearing We are looking for people to removing brush away from structures. Tools provided. One eight-hour work day, from 8-20 scouts.
     
Camp Cooper COPE Course Clean Up This course is for the most part in good condition.  There will be some brush removal to improve visibility, safety and usablity of the area. Tools provided.
     
Camp Cooper Lake rehab. We will need access to one bulldozer with bucket, and one 5-7 yard dump truck, plus qualified, *talented* operators and fuel. The swimming area at Cooper is hardpan packed with pit-run, though over the last several years the area has silted in rather badly. We want to move the silt to the upper parking lot, in part to enlarge the existing lot. Food and lodging will be provided, as this project could take up to four eight-hour days to complete. Bonus points for access to a lake dredge.
     
Meriwether Brush removal Clear brush back from around all structures. Clean up limbs and pile along the nearest road.  You choose how much you would like to accomplish.  This stuff grows back fast every year.  This can be done in just about every campsite and program area.
     
Meriwether Sand removal from adirondack bases Many adirondacks have sand agains the base of the structure.  This traps moisture and shortens the life of the building.  With the costal wind and rain, this is a reoccuring project.  Shovels can be found in the commie shack.  Find a campmaster for a key to the lock.  Move the sand to a place out of the way of travel.
     
Meriwether Sand removal - Bucaneer campsite Bucaneer campsite has sand piling up around several adirondacks.  Shovels can be found in the comissioner shack.  Find a campmaster for a key to the lock.  Move the sand to a place out of the way of travel.
     
Meriwether Adirondack repair There are a number of adirondacks around camp that could use floor boards replaced, graffitti sanded out, and clothing racks repaired.  This  project a would need to be lead by someone with carpentry skills.  Please contact the camp Rangers before planning to preform this service project to get the correct materials.
     
Meriwether Trail clean-up Trails throughout camp can always use sprucing up.  Tools can be checked out on weekend from the campmasters at the comissioner shack.  Or you can bring your own non motorized tools.
     
Meriwether New Climbing area painting The gables,and facia boards of the entry room are in need of primer and paint.  Check with the rangers to see about materials and tools.
