Camp Baldwin

Camp Baldwin is located in the scenic Mount Hood National Forest near Dufur, Oregon.  Tall evergreens and plentiful wildlife abound. Blue skies and warm winds on the eastern slope of Mount Hood attract many Scouts to this pine forested camp each year. Snow camping and cross-country skiing are popular activities during the winter months.  Lake Hanel offers catch-and-release fishing.

Baldwin is a premier summer camp for Boy Scouts during summer months. The camp offers a number of high-adventure activities, including horseback riding, mountain biking, rock climbing and rapelling, mountainboarding, white water rafting, and windsurfing.

During the summer, Baldwin operates as a Jamboree style cooking camp, with Scouts cooking most meals in their campsite.  The camp commissary prepares raw food product and delivers throughout camp twice each day to ensure plenty of quality food is provided to all campers.  This patrol-style cooking lends itself well to troops wishing to strengthen their patrols and young leaders, as cooking together is a time proven way for boys to gain teamwork and leadership skills.

Camp Baldwin is a popular weekend camping destination for Boy Scouts.  Winter months usually find the camp covered with snow, but still accessible, making Baldwin an ideal snow adventure destination for winter campers.  Many troops take along snowshoes or cross-country skiis, and enjoy the camp and thousands of acres of surrounding forest and nearby cross-country ski trail systems.

During winter months, most troops stay inside the heated program center or the fire-heated dining hall.  Tent camping is also available, and a few shelters are available under which tents can be pitched for additional shelter.
