Girls' Camp offers fun for young girls

Many, many parents of Webelos attending Gilbert Ranch have said “it’d be wonderful if I could bring my daughter to Gilbert Ranch, she’d love it!.”

Gilbert Ranch is located at Butte Creek Scout Ranch near Scotts Mills, Oregon. It is a working horse ranch where, when each camper steps onto main street, they lay eyes on the old western town of Butte Creek, and finds it easy to imagine them self as part of the Ol’ West.

Butte Creek offers a very popular Webelos Scout resident camp, catering to fourth and fifth-grade age boys. In recent years, the camp has also begun offering two very special sessions just for girls ages 8 to 13. Girls' Camp features everything the Webelos Scouts get to do, so Scouts’ sisters and other young girls can have the same fantastic summer experience!

Camp Sessions are three days / two nights, and campers and parents stay in large two-person platform tents in campsites. Meals are served in a large full service dining hall.

Girls will attend Sisters’ Camp with at least one parent. Reservations can now be placed online at

Girls’ Camp is one of three new family-oriented camping opportunities now being offered by Cascade Pacific Council. The other two are fun holiday weekend family camps held over the Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekends.

See for details on each of the council’s family camping events; you're sure to love them with your whole family.
