Property Rental Basics

Camp properties and facilties are available for rental by Scout units and guest groups, with priority and reduced pricing given to Scouting units and organizations that charter Scout units in Cascade Pacific Council.
 

Making a reservation:

Any use of properties requires a reservation two weeks in advance. All properties use the new online camp reservation system available April 1, 2013, a link to which can be found below. 

 

This online system is easy to use.  For units within the council, make sure you select your unit or you will not be able to make a reservation.  The system will recognize if your unit is in the Cascade Pacific Council and if you have selected the right district as well. 

 

The system will also already know if your unit should recieve a credit for being an FOS unit.  If your unit should recieve credit for being an FOS unit and the system does not properly credit your unit, please contact your district executive.  If you have any issues outside of FOS issues with the new camp reservation system, please call Volunteer Services at 503-225-5759.

Selecting a Property

If you are not familiar with the properties operated by Cascade Pacific Council, there is a handy reference chart that may help in your selection process.  Also contact Volunteer Services at 503.225.5759 for assistance in finding the right property for your needs.  

Most properties are Scout summer camps, with campsites, dining hall, shower facilities, campfire ampitheatre, shooting ranges, and other facilities typically found at summer camp.  Most are rustic in nature, providing the perfect setting for retreats, weddings, and activities for groups that want to commune with nature.  Whatever your needs, let us help you find the perfect spot for your activity.
