Adopt-A-Campsite For Camp Cooper

Camp Cooper has a unique terrain creating a need for newly designed campsites that both compliment the land in which they reside and the function in which the serve as a weekend camping destination year-round and a training facility during the summer.  This new design requires 4 person minidacks based on a taller version of the standard 2 person design.

Winter weather at Camp Cooper dictates how much of the camp is constructed.  Campsite structures must be build to handle snow and heavy rain.  New campsite shelters are built with heavy metal roofs and good reinforcement.  Pictures of various structures can be seen above. 

Camp Meriwether built four new washstands in 2015 that have now become the model for all campsites throughout the council.  All washstands throughout camp need to be upgraded to this new design as part of the Centennial Adopt-A-Campsite program.  Campsite signage, campfire areas, bulletin boards, flag poles and ax yards are all to be included as part of the program as well.  See the chart and links below in the Campsite Needs Summary section for the exact needs of each campsite.
