Gilbert Ranch at Butte Creek Scout Ranch

2011-08-05 Butte Creek c Mary and Mark Wardell 138Gilbert Ranch is one of Cascade Pacific Council's fine Cub Scout Resident Camps. Gilbert Ranch is located at Butte Creek Scout Ranch near Scotts Mills, Oregon. The moment each Scout steps onto main street and lays eyes on the old western town of Butte Creek, he will find it easy to imagine himself as part of the old west.

Camp Sessions are 3 days / 2 nights and run from July through mid August. Scouts and leaders stay in large two man platform tents. Each pack stays in a campsite identified by different "brands." The Brands are Setting Sun, Lazy B, Yellow Rose, Happy River, Circle T, 2 of Hearts, Flying J and Rocking K. Meals are served in a large full service dining hall.

Program highlights include horseback riding, BB gun shooting, panning for gold, archery, and of course Cowboy Campfires!
